Whilst birdwatching the bottom valley of the Raydah Escarpment in the Asir Mountains of southwest , I came across and photographed a Common Three Ring Ypthima asterope.

It is also known as the African ringlet and is a species of Satyrinae butterfly found in most dry areas of Africa and Asia.

The wingspan is 30–34 mm in males and 32–38 mm in females. Adults are on wing year round.
