Mystery Caterpillar

Anyone have any idea what this is? It is smooth, plump and about 3 inches long. It is hanging onto a Russian Sage bush. It has been moving around from branch to branch for a week. It does not appear to be eating it. No chrysalis yet. Some sort of moth?

Deedee Burnside responded offline that it looks like a Hermit Sphinx Moth. Pretty cool, no?
