water drops

Had a chance to shoot more water drops the other day. This time I had a real macro lens and an pcb einstein to work with. I also used a 580ex, but can't remember which ones. For both the power was at near minimum and aimed at a red background.
For the dropper I used a ziploc bag suspended so one corner was hanging down and poked a hole there. The drops were pretty steady and not too fast or slow.
Depth of field is ridiculously shallow that close, even at f/16, so focusing was tough. I think I'd start a drip, then hold something, like the pin I used to stab the water bag, where the drops were hitting, with one hand while focusing with the other.
