The passion flower has reached an enormous height this year in spite of the heat.
I found one caterpillar of the Gulf Fritillary (Agraulis vanillae) butterfly variety this morning. There he is way up high in the vine - my apologizes for the fuzzy photo. Heat and the fires in Texas have not been friendly conditions for our butterfly friends this year. A butterfly (or caterpillar in this case) sighting is a very special event.
