Photographs of a jet issuing from a wall into a crossflow display the four types of vortical structures which exist in the near field: namely, the jet shear layer vortices, the nascent far field vortex pair, the near-wall horseshoe vortices, and a system of vortices in the wake of the jet. It is shown that the wake vorticity is not “shed” from the jet but is formed from vorticity which originated in the wall boundary layer. The sources of vorticity for the other types of structures are also briefly discussed.
