Smerinthus cerisyi of Sphingidae. If alarmed, adults have an amazing defense mechanism: the body is hunched and the wings are flicked upwards to display a pair of glaring ‘eyes’, one on each side of the abdomen (which resembles a beak at the presented angle). With further disturbance a more dramatic scare tactic is used; this startling ‘face’ is further enhanced by repeated lowering and raising of the forewings, causing a blinking effect to the ‘eyes’. ~via ѕανє συя gяєєη, FB
