Hello Jorge,
Very beautiful with the silhouette of the palmtree and especially with the many diagonal pink lines of the clouds.
Incredible that caterpillars could eat all the leaves of such a tree.
I hope the tree will survive.
The nice thing is that soon you will have a lot of butterflies in your garden.
Best regards, Paul

their aren't butterflies, they are moth, with grey winds and a touch of orange and live after the sunset. in some years the attack of them against palm trees is more heavy and usually the years after they almost disappear because the famine and excess of population.

take care

Oh no, they are moths !
I was hoping you would get to see a lot of beautiful butterflies.

I wish you better luck on your future journeys.
