Captured Moments- Fall caterpillars

The summer garden is coming to an end.  I have been pulling out dead plants, turning the compost and  taking up the soaker hoses.  There are a few flowers still blooming and the the Gulf Fritillary caterpillars are everywhere.  They are taking care of removing the passion vine that invaded the vegetable garden for me.

Not sure what this caterpillar will turn into either.  It was on the dead cypress vines.
