About Me

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,a grandmothe and 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!


Heaven is in Belgium

Macro Monday, I Just Want to Make Love to You ....

Every now and again, there's a song in my head when I make a post ...
Please click on the radio to hear the music.
Trust me. You'll love it!

See more Macro Monday pictures at Lisa's Chaos.

Great Close Ups of the critters, Whatever they are they look like they could leave a nasty sting.

Wanda..... said...

So the bugs like lavender fields too!

Korie said...

Are they doing what I think they're doing?

So they hide in the tall grass too. That is a very good material to start "the birds and the bees" talk with you rising teenager :)Beautiful! Great catch!

Love the addition of music to your last two posts! Not sure who was more intense...your bug lovers or your boules players! That guy with the long hair looks wicked!

I can just see those bugs "doing it" after they get done on those flowers for some reason. You naughty woman you...I love it...excellent photos. This was an absolutely fantastic post :)

Robynn's Ravings said...

Oh yippee! Making yet MORE bugs. Ain't life grand?

quilly said...

Hmmm, the birds do it, the bees do it ... and Jientje photographs it! So what does that make her? Hmmmm? ;)

Great capture.

Wow....mating on flowers...who wouldn't want to?

Unknown said...

You are always in the right place at the right time...or in the right place at the wrong time...! or...in the wrong place at the right time, what ever place you were in once again you captured the MOMENT! great capture!

Eve said...

What a, uhm... romantic(?) setting. Hehe.


That aside - those are beautiful photos - the details are so crisp.

Libby's Library said...

So what is your secret...how do you get all the little critters to stay still so that you can photograph them?

RA said...

What a sharp eye! Great macro shots. Have a wonderful week, Jientje :)

Unknown said...

LOL! I thought that was one creepy bug in the first photo - then I scrolled on! Egads! Two creepy looking critters! :) Great work on them!

Jientje said...

@ Bill: I don't think they were in the mood to sting ME, they were far too "wrapped up " into what they were doing!
@ Wanda: Who wouldn't?
@ Korie: Yes, they are.
@ ellievelli: that's a good idea, LOL!
@ Izzy n Emmy: Thank you!
@ Melli: Heehee, oh but believe me, they're not the only two critters I caught in the act. It must have been the mating season or something, can't explain!
@ Tammie Lee: Thank you.
@ Mama: glad you liked it!
@ Nessa: I didsn't. Don't know about them though.
@ Mama: I had no idea there were so many versions. I happened top come across this one, and I loved it.
@ Evelyn: I'm glad you liked them both. I love to add music now and again. The guy with the long hair was not at all wicked. He had a good heart.
@ Thom: LOL, me naughty? Isangelous I am, with a little twist. ROFL!
@ Robynn: It is!
@ Quilly: ... a critter porn photographer? LOL!
@ Jacki: LOL!
@ P-ter: Ben blij dat içk de mens achter de blog heb leren kennen, en ook dat je mijn blog leuk vindt. Ik zie écht al uit om eens een fotowandeling te doen met een paar mensen. Ik hoop je hier nog veel te zien, en zal jouw blog hier ook aan mijn linkenlijsthe toevoegen. Dan komt het er tenminste van om regelmatig te komen kijken!
@ The retired one: I thought the setting was perfect.
@ Linda Higgins: LOL at your comment! It was the mating season I guess, I found more than just those two. Maybe I should specialize in this kind of photography huh?
@ Tranquility: I thought the setting was pretty romantic yes. No nasty odours spoiling this little love game?
@ Libby: Good question!
@ Rosidah: You too Rosidah!
@ Lisa: I had fun!
