Myrmica species

Disturbed this nest inadvertently, it was under one of the many offcuts of wod in Swinley Forest where woods had been cleared over the years for timber. I took a few images and was surprised to see not the eggs I assumed, but quite developed pupae, some showing signs that they are nearly ready to go!
