Nikon D2x, ISO 800, and a Swarovski Scope with the 800mm adapter, a fixed f10. At that time I was using a program that stripped out the EXIF data when I converted to small JPEG's

I would have to go into my hard drive to find all the information. But I would guess I shot this at around 1/100.

Edited in:

Had to be at least as fast as 1/200.

the water drops on the 2nd image really make the image great.

Excellent Dave, I love the reflection in the first and the splash in the second!

The second shot is much cleaner than the first. In the first shot, the debris and/or bubbles in the background are distracting. The frozen water droplets in the second are outstanding.
