My dad recently took this photo at a stream behind my our house. it was a 2 second exposure with the canon 50d. we are having trouble figuring out why the arch of water droplets is there. shouldn't it be a smooth line since its a long exposure? it seems to be only one droplet since it is all so perfectly parabolic and perfectly spaced. would love any insight anybody has! im really curious!

I don't know where you live, but if you are in Australia, The Philippines or Polynesia, it could be a squirt from an Archerfish.

Do they squirt in pulses? I seem to remember they produce a continuous stream. I still say a single water drop can not be seen with that intensity at that distance.
