I think you saw Great ash sphinx - Sphinx chersis (Hübner, 1823), or some other from NA Sphinx

I just found one of these larva in my back yard lawn - must have been dropped by a passing bird. Not listed as being found in Canada or anywhere in North America.

"Imago" should be changed to "caterpillar". #9834 shot too. :)
