I may be wrong on this, since I have never seen one up here before, but my Audubon book on wildflowers has a picture of a passion flower that looks similiar to this. The one in the book is actually called a Green Passion Flower, but I am sure they come in other colors. Apparentlysome have fruit that is very edible. I think I have heard of Passion Fruit before. Nice capture showing lots of detail- Bruce

Yes, it is a passion flower, but I am not sure it is a wild one. There are a great many cultivated varieties, and this one may be an escape. Here are a couple of other examples:

Its a passion fruit flower, also called Pasiflora. THe flower is sometimes called a clock flower because it resembles a clock with three jands
