All of the photos shown below were created by dispensing two drops from two bottles (one containing red liquid and the other one containing blue liquid) and that degree of complexity is a first for me. (EDIT: I forgot that I had actually used that setup a few times.) That setup produced some formations that were different than anything produced in my 37 previous sessions.

Thank you to Gary, Allan, Karen and Nick!

Nick mentioned the blue "blob" in Photo #3. I'm quite certain that drop would object to being called a blob. :D Even so, now that he has brought it to our attention, take a look at the rectangular shape within that drop. Your challenge, should you decide to accept it, is to explain what that rectangular shape might be.

Maybe someone will chime in with a math based descriptor for the blob—which, BTW, IS a very technical term! No insult inferred!
Well, darn, I think the "blob" is acting as a lens, and the blue must be "reflecting"/"showing" your blue tank/bottle.

Very close! Without knowing my exact setup, it would be impossible to do anything more than guess the object being reflected.

The background is a gradient printed on transparent acetate, attached to translucent frosted acrylic, and lit from behind by three flash units. The rectangular object being reflected is that printed gradient.
