Night Magic.

This giant silk moth, Polyphemus, is named for the mythical Cyclops because of their startlingly large eyespots. This confuses predators into thinking they are a larger creature like an owl and avoid them. As they grow to maturity, they eat 86,000 times their weight, which goes a long way to explaining their large wingspan of 6 inches or more. At a distance, seeing them flutter in the dark with their fuzzy bodies and enormous wings, it is easy to mistake them for magical nocturnal visitors from another world.
