    That worked marvellously well! You only had the in-built flash? Cool.
    Next time you might want to look less ONTO the water but to its side? That is: if the virus is still with you and you still itch to try out some more?

    Only built in flash and the sun lighting from the window!

    "Next time you might want to look less ONTO the water but to its side"

    She means set your camera up at a lower angle, more horizontal and closer to the water level so you can get more of a profile of the drops.
