    Looks to me like a bird got a piece of it. This time of year they will chomp down on anything that is not nailed down.

    •  I thought of a bird too but then the way it was (7+ / 0-)

      collapsed internally didn't seem like the end result of a bird snagging it.  But hey, let me tell ya my fav d-fly story. Well 2 actually.

      1 was 45 years ago and I was out in the woods north of Tampa lying down on the roof of my car at sunset. Skeeters were out and buzzing me but then this d-fly shows up and zooms back and forth over me picking them off just inches above me. That was cool.

      2 was a couple years later and I was in backyard with a cat I was trying to adopt. Suddenly the cat half-leaped and reached up with a paw and snatched a d-fly out of the air. And ate it.

      My grandson got a kick out of these stories as I told him today.
