This Gulf fritillary caterpillar (Agraulis vanillae) was found in my Passion Fruit plant -also called MARACUYA- (Passiflora edulis / P. edulis flavicarpaz) at home.

It was amazing to take this series photos, you will see how this little and astute caterpillar (approx.: 4cm) can do terrible things in a flower, and then, become in a beautiful butterfly.

Sharp detail and good color in your subject Alejandro. Well composed also. My imagination sees a face in the flowers base that's interesting..The white parts are OE and tend to distract from your subject though. You've done well under difficult conditions. Thank you! I did a workshop.
