This photograph uses fluorescent dye to visualize the wake behind a rigid flat plate pitching about its leading edge. A vortex is shed from the plate twice in each cycle of oscillation. These vortices entangle, producing the structured wake above. The top photo shows a side view of the wake, the bottom photo is a top view. (Photo credit: J. Buchholz and A. Smits)
