Small Eyed Sphinx

Dear Bobby & Brenda,
The Small Eyed Sphinx got its common name because of the eyespots on the underwings.  While resting, if the Small Eyed Sphinx is disturbed, it reveals the eyespots which startles the potential predator.  Read more about the Small Eyed Sphinx on the Sphingidae of the Americas Website.
