Holly Blue update

I've been keeping an eye on the Ivy flower cluster where I saw two tiny Holly Blue larvae on 28th August (see previous post). Since this time there's been lots of frass and feeding damage but I hadn't seen any larvae...until yesterday evening when this one was present feeding on a flower bud. The larva has grown rapidly over the last two weeks and appears nearly full grown.
