High-speed flash image showing the collision of two water droplets beneath a bursting soap bubble by Greg Parker, Hampshire. The two droplets fell at slightly different times. The first broke through the top of the soap bubble and hit the pool of water beneath. As the water from this impact reflected upward, it was hit by the second droplet. The image was captured using a Canon 5D Mark II SLR camera and a xenon flash unit with an exposure time of 9 microseconds.<br />
