So Many Concentric Rings in These Orb Veils

Photo date: January 3, 2017. Photographer: Mark Mahin.

I took the photos below while photographing nothing but ordinary drops of pure, clean water falling against a dark background. In these photos taken back-to-back, we see the strange things I call orb veils. No such object appeared after the second photo was taken. It was as if the object was hanging around to be photographed in consecutive photos.

Incidentally, none of the photos on this blog have ever been taken with anything like a "microscope camera." I only use palm-sized point-and-click cameras (I don't even use 35-millimeter).
