you're welcome. And thanks for look my works

I am skeptical this is resolving down to the size of bacteria. I would suggest trying it with some cheek cells from your mouth suspended in water. They are easily recognized and the size and shape of the nucleus is predictable. Bacteria need 200-400x and I doubt a water droplet has this magnification - just guessing.

Thank you for your suggestion. Yes, I believe that the cheek cells from mouth has that predictable shape. Thank you :)

The video looks like Brownian motion of particles in suspension in the droplet.

Neat trick. The laser beam expands using the water drop as a lens. This is how the first microscopes were done - without glass lenses!
Then the laser turns it into a projector.

Another good thing to mention is don't point laser into eyes

Legaly compliant laser pointers are too weak to do any damage - it's still unpleasant though.
