“Smerinthus ocellatus, the eyed hawk-moth, is a European moth of the family Sphingidae. The distinctive eyespots are not visible in resting position while covered by the forewings; they are displayed when the moth feels threatened, and may startle a potential predator, giving the moth a chance to escape.”
