Hi,

without having read all the other replies.. this looks like a stroboscope effect - as you didn't use a flash it seems I figure that this could have been a single drop that was reflecting light in a periodical way while flying through a dark/shadowy area after bouncing off somewhere i.e. by a flickering branch/leaf somewhere in the pathway of the lightray during the exposure time - the scene seems to be able to explain that

I wonder if there was diffracted light through which the drop passed.  Diffraction has light/dark (nodes/antinodes) doesn't it?
