When two jets of liquid collide, they form a sheet of fluid.  As the speeds of the jets change, the sheet can become unstable, forming a set of liquid ligaments and droplets that look like a fish’s bones. This is shown in the video above. For purposes of orienting yourself, flow in the video is moving right to left and the video has been rotated 90-degrees clockwise (i.e. the two out-of-frame jets forming the flow seen are falling due to gravity).
