Predators feast
Where the core of the Sanctuary is now, I saw a considerable number of butterflies already dead butterflies on the ground. Most had a totally torn body, and abdomen gone, and parts of wings here and there. This could mostly be due to predators.
Banquete para los depredadores
En el área centro del Santuario hoy, pude observar una cantidad considerable de mariposas muertas en el piso. La mayor parte tenía su cuerpo totalmente roto y sin abdomen, con pedazos de alas aquí y allá. Esto podría deberse en gran parte a los depredadores.
