Lovely intense colour and shape. The bubble looks like a big protective tent!

how'd you get the impact to happen inside the bubble without deforming it (the bubble) in any way?

the bubble does deform and then springs back if you look at the "living in a bubble" impacts you can see it happening :)

ah okay. I wasn't sure if it were possible for it to spring perfectly back to normal in the small amount of time from when the droplet goes through it, to when the droplet hits the rebound of the previous droplet. Thanks for explaining though. Excellent work. I'm just curious, how many attempts did it take to finally get the shot?

With my setup I getting the water collision about 9 times out of 10, controlling the position of the bubble is the hard part :)

ah okay. How'd you do that? My first inclination would be to simply blow on it with a straw or something, lol.

Use the blower that made the bubble because it is covered in the bubble solution you can touch the bubble without it bursting and gently move it around :)
