Thank you! I looked everywhere on google and could not find any images that matched mine. Thankfully I found it first when going outside with my kids!

you most probably have a plant it likes so there will likely be more. they do like to rest on homes also, plaster in particular.
if you find you have a lot of them on a plant, you can spray the plant with Bt (thuricide). it is an organic spray that won't harm anything but caterpillars. they eat the plant and then die.
