Water Droplet at 2000 Frames Per Second

A droplet of water does not immediately coalesce into a pool of water. The droplet is checked by a thin layer of air, which it must first push out of the way, causing it to bounce or rest momentarily on the surface of the water.

Some of the video is beautiful, especially at about 50 seconds in.
