Thank you Jussiuk and Tcook.

The closeup of the Hole (# 3) is at full 12x zoom (always with 6T) whereas most of the other have less zoom.
Only a matter of luck and statistics to achieve strange or "extreme " results.
The hole is the moment in which the water drop has sunk into the milk reaching the bottom metal surface.

I think milk and water have very different characteristics (don't dare to try with oil for it would stain my protective filter).

I have tried to achieve strange results while those by Tchuanye are more realistic (shot with external flash, showing the splashes shadows....)

In my case -forgot to say that- I used my POLARIZER to protect the Nikon 6T lens (I have a 62mm polarizer, while my UV is 72).
This contributed to make these indoor flash pics more strange and less contrasty (then I worked with Photoshop).


FINALLY note that it is much important to prepare the SET (whereas I was on a hurry, had not much time and shot only about 150 pics) considering shadows, reflections and the way to drop liquids and how to drop (in my case the water from the fountain , but I must try with mercury)

Tcook I meant chemical thing (Hg).
I have a discrete amount of it (maybe from old broken thermometers ?) in a box with many Minerals/Crystalswhich I have since I was younger (yeahhh, this is another thing I will photograph as I have time to) !

Mercury splashes on the surface of a CD lightened in the right way (see pic below) must be fine
