Caterpillar foods: blackberry fruit and petals of composite flowers (Bugguide)
Very common here
8/27/2011 This is – I’m pretty sure – a Blackberry Looper caterpillar. I tried to rear it, but lost it before winter came, and it never reappeared. It was eating the flowers of Field Thistle – Cirsium discolor.
