Rare sight of Death's-Head Hawkmoth

Morning walk through the Yam fields and other cultivation , I noticed this strange moth on a blade of grass. Never seen anything like this creature before. The farmers said the same thing. It was resting and would not move. I took several snaps . Found information on internet about this Moth.
