These incredible images look like doilies, but are in fact photographs of tiny, shaking water droplets as seen through an electron microscope.  In cymatics, or the study of visible sound and vibration, scientists examine and document the effects of wave forms on water droplets by exposing them to sound of various frequencies.  The water forms distinct patterns coinciding with the pitch of the vibration.
