I’m excited to have made my first bug discovery which I believe is a Gulf Fritallary. Saw the other postings on this caterpillar, but I’d love to find out some more about it to share with my kids (they were just as excited to discover it).

Once you have a name, it is remarkably easy to locate information on the internet. This Gulf Fritillary Caterpillar, Agraulis vanillae, feeds on passionflower vine and will metamorphose into a lovely orange butterfly with silver spots on the underwings.
