Top one looks like Schizura ipomoeae, the common name given in my book is checkered-fringe prominent but it is also known as morning glory prominent:

Second one looks like a banded alder borer, Rosalia funebris

Anyone know what this caterpillar will turn into? It's day-glo lime green, over 2" long and new to this area.
