"Ready To Fly"

This is a Gulf Fritillary butterfly. I found its Chrysalis a few days ago attached to a Passion Vine in the backyard. I moved the Chrysalis to my screen porch so I could see the butterfly when it  emerged but I missed it! When I checked it this morning, the Chrysalis was already empty... the  Fritillary's wings were  dry & it was flying around the porch & on the floor looking for a way out....  I took a few quick pictures before catching it & setting it free...
