Drop art photography using a fried egg

EDIT: I added the second photo because I prefer it.

Thank you to Binnur, Nick and Gordon!

Now you really are playing with your food!
Probably more than you thought. I imagined the drops penetrating the yolk's surface before bouncing upward or at least using the yolk's surface as a trampoline. Instead, the surface was so relatively rigid that the drops just bounced off in no attractive formation. So, I broke the yolk's surface to get more appealing results. I had hoped to get a high bounce and the collision that is captured in traditional drop art photography but the taller bounces were out of control. So, I settled for capturing the crown.

Thank you also to dossy, Alex, Urban and olshroom!

1/8 of a second csaptured that. Wow. I thought it would have been much faster..
I didn't explain in any of my posts that I used a flash unit to stop the action. In that situation, the shutter speed is not indicative of the amount of time bright light was striking the sensor; instead, it is the amount of time the flash unit was emitting its light that matters. The flash unit was emitting light for about 1/18,000 second.
