Passion on the wing

Caught this beautiful splash of orange in Mom's flower beds this afternoon. I think it's a Gulf Fritillary or Passion Butterfly, Agraulis vanillae which makes sense as Mom has a vigorous passion flower vine in the back yard that is loaded with passion flowers as well as hanging fruit which we always called 'May Pops'...no relation to the bald tires of the same name. ;)
