Just bought a D5000 last night and I have been really enjoying it. Never had a DSLR before so I am playing around quite a bit.

I am trying my hand a take pictures of drops of water hitting the surface of a bowl of water. However I cannot get the kit lens to focus at all on the water. It tries, but then cannot find a subject to focus on I guess.

How do I get it to focus? I've tried putting my hand in the shot and quickly taking it away, but that does not work.
