This moth with excellent camouflage was clicked in our garden two weeks ago. I showed the pic to a few friends who too had trouble picking it out..I can’t recall having seen a similar one earlier. Could you identify it please?

Dear Kiran,
This beautiful, wide ranging moth is an Oleander Hawkmoth.  As its name implies, the caterpillar feeds on oleander.
