The behavior of cavitation bubbles in a starting submerged water jet discharging from a circular nozzle is studied by a simple photography technique in a moderately low range of jet exit velocity. A number of small spherical bubbles are initially generated in a starting vortex formed at the jet tip and often connected circumferentially with each other in the form similar to a vortex ring. Nearly axisymmetric lumps of disconnected bubbles are also observed frequently. By analyzing photographic data acquired from the side and end view pictures of the ring-like bubbles, their average properties, such as trajectory, geometry and size, are evaluated.
