Gulf Fritillary butterfly larva

Agraulis vanillae

Description:

Black/brown body with orange markings and soft barbed spikes running down it length.

Habitat:

lays eggs almost exclusively under passion flower

Notes:

I found the second pic interesting because the pattern on its back gradually forms a butterfly near the head
