Worn Wings
"The crop this year seems very beat and worn, more so than normal.  Almost all of those I've seen nectaring or roosting have been shredded, in very poor condition. The best are very worn and pale.  Yes, some always are, but it is a higher percentage this year." Mitch Heindel, Utopia, TX

What do you think could cause a butterfly's wings to look this way?
