If I had to guess, based on the shape, I would say it is a large moth. It seems to sharp and well defined to me, I am guessing photoshop..wish it was a fairy.
Moth is a good candidate I think, though the wing flapping seems to be missing.
I should have at least one wing shape change here somewhere even for low resolution, unless it's a helicopter timing effect where the shutter speed synchronizes with movement.

Praying Mantis. The elongated section that is clearly the front-end of what direction it's flying; is too long to be a moth.
And, Bats love eating mantis.

Its either a moth or mosquito.
What frame rate does the camera capture?
Flapping of wings will be detectable if its a very high frame rate.

For this video and case i really cant tell if its really good CGI/VFX but i do know if this was VFX it shouldn't have being to hard to do in Nuke/AE. Maybe it was VFX still.
