It looks like a Handmaiden moth but what really caught my eye were the stiff hook-like antennae. Wings have three, sort of heart shaped,windows. The body is yellow and black...the most visually striking colour combination and therefore I was surprised when a Drongo made a couple of very low passes over the Basil plant but ignored or missed this one.

The next day another moth had joined it and the two stayed there face to face till the rains drove me away.
