Elephant hawk-moth: This surprisingly bright species is found across parts of Europe and Asia from Ireland to Japan. Its coloring is what gives it its name, with the wings spread out like two large ears. Notice the pink spots on the body look like the outline of eyes at the top and lead down the body as if it were a long trunk.
