Moment of Impact

I can never seem to get a perfect reflection! This shows a collision between two water drops. First, a drop falls from a mariotte siphon, strikes the water, and forms a spout. A drop is then launched from the top of the spout. This is when a second falling drop collides with the rising drop, causing it to spread outwards.

 

Blue water in the mariotte siphon dripping into a frying pan full of clear water.

SB-26 at 1/64 bounced off a piece of green paper in the background fired via SB-600 mounted on camera.
