I have my ideas, but I'll let you go first.

You have woken some water spirits. 
Treat them respectfully; they can be tricky and very mischievous.  If you upset them they could replace your Bokeh with noise or worse.
 
Great shots, thanks for sharing them.

Please share how you set this shot up. 
I shoot with a Camera Obscura with an optical device attached that refracts and transmits light

I did not take any pictures of the setup. I use a Camera Axe  it is an an Arduino based camera trigger with lots of options including a water valve. In these shots I used a piece of black lexan for the backdrop a blue and red gelled flash on opposite sides and a flash off camera. These were actually quite accidental, but that makes water drop shooting fun, no two are exactly alike. I don't use a completely dark room but dark enough for 2-3 second exposures, the flashes freeze everything ( use manual lowest setting ).

what I was actually doing here was trying to maximize the height of the spout and increase the colliding drop size. I went to far and got more of a dribble for the second drop. I used a homemade piezo sensor to detect the first drop hitting the tank then varied the time till flash from there, I think these were like 200 milli second after first contact. The Camera axe makes this fairly easy and the piezo sensor makes it very repeatable. There is a lot of information on the Camera Axe forums.  Oh and I was seeing about the same things as everyone else.
