The thoroughfare was busy; the noon hour traffic hustling and bustling as usual.  A fuzzy, rather nondescript caterpillar, looking neither left nor right, began undulating across the street.  Paying no attention whatsoever to the wheels whizzing by, it headed straight across and reached the other side, miraculously unscathed!
     A Starling, watching the caterpillar from a nearby mulberry tree, suddenly flew down.  Almost apologetically, it picked up the caterpillar in its beak and immediately took flight directly into the side of an oncoming 1985 Toyota Crown!
     The caterpillar??  Last seen, it was taking up residence in a recently vacated mulberry tree.
