Herb / ornamental lawn of some kind.  Looks like a mixture of two types of thyme - one silver, one with purple flowers, bronze leaved Leptinella squalida, and white flowered Pratia pedunculata.  Pretty, but ultimately impractical as they grow at different rates.  Could also be used for green roofs as they're pretty drought resistant.

You are a star, that’s very helpful thank you. I’ll do some more investigation.

I took the same type of shot at the RHS Show 2017 and also got the names off the labels that were there. My Image J57R4N

 

Raoulia australis, Leptinella squalida Platts Black and Pratia pedunculata Alba

 

Best

Udderly ridiculous question ... 

I came across some cattle yesterday. They didn't exactly look like ordinary Frisian milk cows. I was thinking Limousin, but I'm not sure. Or maybe a mixed breed? Does anyone know.

Blimey. Thanks very much. I did take photos of labels of everything else I shot,  it somehow seemed to miss that one. Thanks again. And I think your photo is better :)

I’m hoping there may be some butterfly experts around here. I have tried online identifier sites to try to place this one, but with its wings shut I can’t get a good answer. Anyone have an idea please? I feel bad that I can’t reciprocate all the help I get here. If anyone needs help with anything Scottish related, I might be able to do so :) my professional knowledge is not much help with photography.

I think it might be Battus polydamas, the Polydamus swallowtail, from the Caribbean and tropical parts of North, Central and South America.  There are some subspecies so it could be one of those.

Ah, great. I have an image of another swallowtail, but it has yellow colouring. I will check this out. Thanks once again.

The big red bull certainly looks like a Limousin, we used to have some.  The cows look more like a Charolais cross with possibly Simmental or maybe Hereford.  But certainly crosses.

Those cattle images reminded me of GS-Images, who started this topic. Where did he go? To greener pastures perhaps?

 

UPDATE: Looks as if Geoff has posted some live news weather shots recently, so I guess he's still in the building.

Geoff is still with Alamy but after a few fiascos with red arrows decided not to post on the forums anymore.

 

Remember this is what drove Philippe Clement away too.

 

A lot of people on here miss both of them and their very useful, and sometimes fun comments, me included.

It's a shame. Geoff was one of the few to give me advices when I joined this forum and we will miss him.
