Well, I think it's a hawk moth. Input from specialists/ knowledgeable people is very welcome.
Drinking nectar from a Brunsfelsia ("Yesterday Today and Tomorrow" bush. The moth is a little short of 2cms tip to tail.

A strange-looking critter.

Indeed. I guess the bee-like hind-quarters are camouflage?
