This species is very
similar to the common

There are several other species too, which I didn't see. The
characteristic of three-spot is, as its name suggests, the three spots
visible in the underside cell of the forewing when the butterfly is at

Grass yellows are small, restless
creatures that I often saw along hedges, ducking into the grass or
foliage beneath the hedge then soon emerging and flapping off somewhere
