This sawfly larva was feeding off of a coniferous tree. It had quite the mimicry to blend into those needles! I believe it has caused some damage to the conifer, of which you can see at photo four. Notice all of I looked through Wagner's caterpillar book, but could not find anything with the same head. This was because it is a sawfly larva. BugGuide is trying to ID it at the moment.
