This super high resolution video (check the original on YouTube) by filmmaker Jacob Schwarz features slow motion diffusion of ink into water. The subtle differences in density between the ink and the water promote instabilities and its distinctive cascade of mushroom- or umbrella-like shapes. The mixing of two fluids seems like a simple concept, but the reality is beautiful, complex, and always fascinating. (Video credit: J. Schwarz; submitted by Rebecca S.)

A great inspiration for making liquid effects and becoming a Special Effects Wizard.
