My granddaughter found this in her yard today. I want to make sure it is harmless. Any input is appreciated! Thank you!

    Maybe a butterfly caterpillar? Possible the variegated fritillary (Eutopieta claudia}? Check out the included link below, scrolling down or click on the tab “View more photos” for other images. Click to enlarge. Best wishes!
