Butterfly flies free
A butterfly decides to lay an egg on a soya bean field in the Amazon; many others decide for the same. The reason is that the caterpillar has to survive by munching it away. That move has another big advantage: no predators around for the whole metamorphosis:Egg! Larvae! Pulp! Adult flies!!!
In other conditions merely 10% would survive. In the fields of the lords of destruction they may all fly free.
