Fly once, then die.

Nunca he sido partidario de tener libros científicos en mi biblioteca. Como crecer es cambiar de principios, ayer recibí en casa la décima edición de Developmental Biology de Scott F. Gilbert. En la página 6 explica:

In silk-worm moths, for instance, the adults do not have mouth parts and cannot feed; the larva must eat enough so that the adult has the stored energy to survive and mate. Indeed, most female moths mate as soon as they eclose from the pupa , and they fly only once —to lay their eggs. Then they die.

Inevitablemente me he acordado de Wert y Gallardón, directores de la orquestada metamorfosis española.
