Beautiful moth

Hello,
I discovered a beautiful, green moth near the front door this afternoon. I live in the Netherlands and I’ve never spotted a moth like this. Could you tell me what kind of moth this is? And is it common in the area I live in? Thank you very much.

Hi Martijn,
This is the second photo we posted this week of a Lime Hawkmoth, Mimas tiliae.  The first example was from England.  You can read more about this lovely moth on the UK Moths website.
