Macro Monday: Lentils

I didn't have a macro shot ready for today, so I went on a bit of a macro scavenger hunt today.
After taking many, many photos of any number of random household objects, 
I finally settled on these photos as my Macro Monday subjects.
Lentils
 
I think it was the light and color that made these pictures stand out over all the others.
There are many more macros to search through on Lisa's Macro Monday page.

Check it out.

What are you making? I have lentils at home too, they are sometimes called dhals.

The second photo is the one Colleen. All the neat shapes and the monochromatic color -- and the great lighting. Excellent! I love lentils but my wife doesn't, so... I don't use them in my cooking. Bummer.

Are you making soup? The color and light is nice.

I love the second one! You have that beautifully focussed, which isn't easy for a parallel plane. Well done. :)

Beautiful - golden. Sometimes impromptu shots are the best. I have an Indian friend who makes the best daal dish with these blonde lentils. Mmmm.
