    Help Identify Caterpillar On Passionflower Vine

    We've got a Passionflower vine that is getting devoured by these guys. Any ideas what they are? They only seem to be going after the Passionflower vine, and nothing else in the garden / yard. Once we figure them out, we'll determine if it's safe to feed them to the chickens, and then how to...

    @nifty and other staff appreciation thread... :)

    Preview?

    Ya, it's a bit different than before (the company that creates the software made the change recently). The "separate" preview has it's pros and cons for sure.
