My Hero!

Gulf Fritillary Butterflies lay their eggs on the passion vines and the resulting caterpillars devour the plant if they are not removed.  Their bitter taste protects them from birds and anything else that might eat them.  However, today I saw a ladybug eating the egg of a Gulf Fritillary Butterfly!
