Surface Tension Drops In Slo-Mo: A Ballet More Graceful Than Swan Lake

Ballet is considered one of man’s most graceful artistic endeavours, but Mother Nature can still easily one-up us through the right lens. In this case, that lens happens to be pointed at the complex interactions between a falling water drop and a pool of water, capturing their intricate dance at 2500fps.

Even with years of practise and performances, it turns out a single drop of falling water can still give a more mesmerising performance than even Baryshnikov.
