f/9.5, 1/60th sec, iso 100, 180mm macro lens.

I cut a cardboard box so that it was open on top and on one end. Then I placed a photo that I had taken and printed of a sunflower at the far end of the box. Suspended the brush from the edge of the box about a third of the way into the box. Applied liquid to the brush and photographed the drop just before it dropped.
