Bumble bee and Speckled Wood

Buff-tailed bumblebee, Bombus terrestris in
Hedge Bindweed, Calystegia sepium 
Rain sent me home early today with just a Speckled Wood and a Bumble Bee. I have been trying photo techniques to follow the progress of the Comma pupa. It pupated between the 22 and 26th August. The adult butterfly should emerge about 2 weeks after pupation, so I expect some action around September 6. I hope to photograph the emergence.
Speckled Wood, Pararge aegeria
Comma pupa, Polygonia c-album
