    She's cupping water from a stream.

    Hello.



    What do you answer if somebody asks you what this girl is doing?

    She's cupping water from a stream.
    Does this sound natural?

    Thank you.

    She is standing in a stream/pool, cupping water in her hands.

    It's not correct to say scooping in place of cupping?

    You could say: "...scooping up water with her hands."
