its under a microscope but it hangs on a sort of thread.

Correct Neilep, vibration it is.
the cup of coffee is on a surface which is vibrating close to a "normal mode " frequency (about 20Hz),
 which produces this pattern of standing waves.

You may have seen similar patterns in cups of liquid when the washing machine goes on to spin cycle.

Thanks Robert (call me  'Neil '), I'm on a roll today !!

yes, I have seen similar results when wifey sits on the washing machine!! [:D]

...That's a great photo though.

Little hint for you...it might be wise to change the name of the photo before posting it !!..I only checked afterwards, but there are scrupulous people here (not me of course ![:D]) who would just check the properties of the piccys for a clue (not me !..) [;)]

Thanks Hadrian...was that your eye Chum ?
