Rainy day waterdrop photography

First go at this, a lot more tricky than I thought it would be! Without any laser trips it’s a question of taking a lot of shots until you catch a droplet in frame. Getting enough DOF is difficult because the flash has to be at its lowest setting (1/128) to freeze motion. Could probably do with a second flash capable of the same power setting to double the light output without slowing the exposure. Could then mix colours too. It wouldn't be very difficult to add a laser wire function to my arduino focus stepper, I might look into that...
