With this clearer pic, I'm sure it's a Polyphemus caterpillar and not the very similar Luna Cat. You may want to make this your main spotting of this creature, and delete the other? You can always add the blurry pic as a second pic on this one. The only bad thing is you'll loose the comments from the original. Or now that you know the ID you can add this pic to the original and delete this one...that way you only loose this comment. :)
