Fully Grown larva.

I wasn't really intending to take any more images of the Wall Brown larvae as I do have a fair selection and there are perhaps too many in the computer. However, yesterday whilst looking for early season moths I came across a fully grown larva sitting perfectly on an old grass stem. It was possibly resting before feeding up for the day as it was only about 8am. After taking a few images I left it be hoping that in a few days I might be able to relocate it as a pupa? 
Even this early in the day a few Small Tortoiseshell and Peacock were moving about as was a single Brimstone.
