Okay. I took this shot a while back, and after a closer look I noticed a drop imaged in the neck of the original drop. What are your thoughts, Is it due to the lensing effect of the throat of neck of the drop just above, or from a drop just behind

I don't know the answer to your question, but that is an interesting image. I really like it.

ALIENS! Sorry, couldn't resist.

But seriously. A drop from behind, as the light from the drop above wouldn't arbitrarily manifest itself on the side. Just my 2 centavos

Maybe an air bubble? To call something a drop within a drop, there'd have to be a boundary between the two areas of water, and what could it be made of?

It is a nice image. I think the visual ambiguity you mention is part of the attraction of this sort of image.

Well it's a wonderful splash shot - I go with the air bubble suggestion.

I have done a few of these shots but never seen a large air bubble like this. I have a feeling it may be a magnified drop from behind. It just seems odd that the bowl of the collision is aimed at it ,and it shows on the part of the neck .
Thank you for the compliments. I think your right Lester it does add to the charm of the shot. The Physics of the second drop has me perplexed. Probable a conspiracy, by aliens;-)a
