@Dulcie: spray water on a cd, (the sun must be low and the cd must be between you and the sun, play with your macro lens!

@Majo: I am sorry, Majo, I did it in Afrikaans for my Dutch friends, but I'll do it in English as well. You take an old cd not one with music on, but one of those empty ones, one you discarded. The sun must be low, early morning or late afternoon. Put the cd on a table outside, spray with water put you camera with macro lens on table. Cd must be between you and the sun. Start playing! At this image, the light is coming through the hole in the cd.
