Gulf Fritillaries

My family used to have a raging passion flower taking over the fence in our backyard. It was gorgeous, but was destroying our fence, so it had to go. Before my family pulled it out, we found a spiny little caterpillar in the brush and after some research I found it was a Gulf fritillary. Very beautiful and a great surprise!
