What’s Eating Only Sunflower Leaves

I have a large garden with tomatoes, peppers, squash, herbs, etc. But something is really eating the leaves on my sunflower plants. I have some in the front yard also among flowers, the same is happening. ONLY the sunflower leaves, they're about 3-5 ft tall. I have gone out to look at ALL times of the day and night and see nothing.

Typically, if you don't see the pest, it is either slugs or rodents. Both come out late at night when most people are sleeping. These articles will help:
