This is from saturday's Agumbe trip. I took it in a hurry since I was standing in rain. Shot at 1/20 sec handheld, this is where IS really helps.

Default Experiment with water

Here is one i clicked to capture the water droplets. My olympus C720 has a pretty limited macro mode. I could not get it to focus very well.

@Ripper - Feel free. I took the idea from the Net. What i did was to place a blue coloured bowl under the kitchen sink. Make sure you use the flash as you need to get a low shutter speed. The flash also reflects off the water drops and makes it look good.

I would have liked to go nearer and take just the splash on the whole photo. But, i am yet to try more experiments. Will try today if possible.

Great shot buddy good timing and drops came out pretty sharp.

Guys basic rules of wild life photography. You should not use flash. Its so obvious that they get scared.

@hellstar
nice one. but noise is a bit high. noise ninja is supposed to be good for noise reduction. I use PS3 to reduce noise.

I look forward to your valuable critique of these photos. I did not have a stand with me so some snaps may have some camera shake.
