This one reminds me of a cocktail glass, with a cherry. It is red food colouring dropped into plain water.
A nice mushroom shaped water drop lit with two flashguns using blue and purple gels.
2 or 3 milliseconds before impact. It may not be the most dramatic water drop photo, but its something you never get to see with the naked eye. Well you do see it but your brain doesn’t recognise it as important so we miss it.
Just a slight hint of red on the beads.
