I came across this bug last week in my front yard (January 2011). I moved him off of the walking path. My coworker and I were curious what he might turn into. I looked online but didn’t see any bugs that looked like him.
This is the caterpillar of a Gulf Fritillary, a pretty orange butterfly that can be found where passionflower grows because that is the food for the caterpillars.
