Midnight visitor ???

When I was outside yesterday admiring the daffodils and jonquils, I snapped a photo of a clump of Chionodoxa (Glory of the Snow).   I planted them about 20 years ago on either side of the front steps.  Most years, it seems they get trampled and only have a few blooms, but this year the clumps were full of pale pink blooms.  This is how they looked yesterday afternoon.

Apparently I had a hungry visitor overnight that needed a little snack.  I imagine those pale little flowers must have looked tasty.  Here’s what I discovered at the bottom of the steps today.
