Thank you Tukup, I do have a few bats but maybe not enough...I always thought that when they were tattered was because of the birds...I have seen some of my Hummers go for them....

Still a beautiful butterfly Gilma. In our area, tattered butterflies and moths are caused by the incredible number of bats here. Toward the end of their lives, they are all look pretty beat-up. Thanks for sharing.
