Default Butterfly with damaged wings

Here is a few pictures of a yellow Swallow Tail Butterfly feeding on wild flower nectar. I noticed that parts of its wings were chewed up or missing but it was still flying around and looked very normal.

It's amazing that they can migrate hundreds of miles on those delicate wings.

I don't if the Western Swallow Tail Butterflies migrate to other area or not. It seems like they are here year round. The Monarchs have left my area and they are all in Pacific Grove further south.
