Dark dagger moth caterpillar

Despite trawling the web and reading up in my reference books I have been unable to find out what the caterpillar was doing on this gossamer carpet, I am guessing that he has been caught by a predator and the white capsule under its rear is going to eat it when it emerges. this little caterpillar was about 1.5 cm long. This was on the Alder in our garden.
