Nancy, Cathy and Myra, thanks a lot for your kind comments.
It was just an experiment (first time I try something like this) I filled a flower glass vase half the way with water and set the camera on its tripod and with one hand I was triggering the cable release and with the other I was dropping the strawberry in the water.
I don't know how many shots I took (too many) the problem is thta the berry is havier at the botton so it was falling in water upside down most of the times.
but at least one was right!

Danilo, this is great! I love that you got the strawberry and water to fill the frame! I like that you can't see the container! Very very nice!

Thank you, thank you, thank you !!!!
It was hard work to achieve what I had in mind and with very artisanal set up and basic equipment, but I guess the result payd off!
