    Hm, thinking about it a bit more, a puddle on top of the floating mirror might alter its balance if the puddle is not perfectly centered.  That might explain the difference between the two images: the puddle edges might migrate a little as the lazy susan is turned.  Even if the puddle were rock steady, though, there's the uncertainty of where its center of gravity is relative to the mirror's.

    Cheers,
    Peter
