Re: Could it be a rogue water droplet?

Well, possibly slower.

The water on the waterfall did not start accelerating from zero if it was fed from a stream which already had some component of downward motion. Additionally, it is unlikely in such a short waterfall that terminal velocity was not reached. Since the falls is higher than the arc of the droplet, would they not have accelerated to a slightly different speed?

Of course, even if true, I don't know how that would create the phenomenon/artifact shown in the photo.
