Hi, quick question about my Nikon D5100.

As an example, say I want to shoot a still of a transparent tank of water with a low ISO (under 500 to avoid excessive noise). The environment is low light so to gather enough light, I lower the shutter speed to say 10 seconds. So it would take 10 seconds for the camera to take the shot and any number of seconds extra for it to process the image. Everything is fine so far but now let's assume I wish to drop an object into the water at the 5 second mark and have the camera freeze this object with it's flash. How would I do this? and is this even possible?
