Giant night-butterfly

This butterfly was standing on a wall of a village house in Steniklaros, Messinia, Greece.

It was standing frozen for over 10 hours. None of us attempted to touch it until we left the place!

If anyone knows more details about this kind of butterfly, please let me know!

I found a similar kind of this butterfly in this address

They are called owl butterflies!
