About Me

My photo
Antwerp, Belgium
Welcome to the new, and improved version of Heaven in Belgium. I am Jientje. "Jientje", like the boys name Gene, followed by "chu"? "Gene-chu", that's how you pronounce my name. Yes!!!!That's it!! So now you know huh? I am an addicted blogger. I was born and raised and am still living in Belgium. Yeah, the "this-is- Tuesday-so-this-must-be-Brussels" kind of Belgium .. There, you see? Maybe you couldn't find it on the map, but at least I'm trying to change that a little by sharing lots of pictures. I really love to cook and create new things, like this blog for instance. I am a mother, not a grandmother,I don't know if I'll ever be, but I'll let you know in due time! Oh and um ... I am a wife too! They say I'm a traveler, and a photographer. Well that's just what they say, I love to make pictures, but I am far from professional ... If my English is not perfect, that would be because it's my second language. I do hope you'll forgive me any possible misspellings or strange vocabulary ... Now, as a result of all of the above, I get way too little sleep and my days are always much too short!

Macro Monday

 

These will most probably please Quilly and the Amoeba who led me to this beautiful little creature. I’ll need the scientific brain of the Amoeba to remember his name though. Amoeba?

As you can see, the little one was most eager to get his picture taken. He was not at all shy and he posed willingly.

Oh my goodness, he is SO cute! I love those bright cheery colors, our lizards (chameleons?) are just dull grayish brown.

hip chick said...

Wow! I love the orange on him. He's awfully cute.

The French Bear said...

Super macro! What a cutie :)

Jacki said...

Those are some of the best pictures I've seen any lizard I've ever seen!

Kristi said...

What a cool looking gecko! Love him!

LceeL said...

Oh. LOOK!! It's the Geico Gecko!! (In the US, Geico Insurance Company uses a Gecko in its TV adverts, as a spokesperson. No. Really.)

villager said...

I love the color contrast between the lizard and the flowers. Great photos!

Wanda said...

I felt like I was in a different world
immediately on viewing the photo Jientje...a very colorful world!

Ida from South Africa said...

Attractive guy! Amoeba will be bursting with proud if you compare it with brain cells - LOL!! :-)

moneythoughts said...

I have seen that lizard before on TV. I believe that is the GEICO lizard that does their insurance company commercials. That lizard is a real ham, if you know what I mean.

Susanne said...

The colors in the pics are amazing and you had a very cute model!

moorebloglife said...

Jientje I think this is a Gecko you did a fantastic job, loved number two!

Kathy said...

Hey Jientje, amazing colours here and what a handsome subject. I have missed your photography big time, my son is coming out for Christmas and he is bringing his camera so we can have a few days just clicking around (I cannot wait)have a wonderful week, hugs, Kathy.

It is cute, and very colorful. Good thing he wasn't shy!

Looks like onre of those insurance lizards. In any case it is cute.

Christine said...

I love him! Great colorful shot.

lisaschaos said...

Wow, he's not shy! I love his eye shadow - he seems a little flirtatious! :)

Linda Higgins said...

I can't believe that little Gecko was not spooked by you and ran off! What a fantastic shot and with him sitting on those flowers is amazing. The colors are so brilliant! GREAT SHOT! Awesome that you actually saw a real Gecko Lizard because we only see him on commercials here! LOL

Maggie`s Mind said...

Oh my gosh, how seriously cute!! Great, great shots.

Oh how cute. He almost looks unreal.

The colours and subject combine to make very fun shots.

I must admit that he looks lovely on camera! But I don't know, if I were that brave to take his shot. LOL
