A Caterpillar With Passion

This is a caterpillar, perhaps a Fritillary or the Passion Butterfly (Agraulis vanillae) atop a Passion Flower Vine (Passiflora incarnata).  Passion Flower is native to Missouri and a rather aggressive vine.  If you choose to landscape with this, you will enjoy its gorgeous flowers and its attractiveness to butterflies, but beware its rapid growth habit!
