Kelvin waves formed on precessing helical vortex tube after vortex reconnection were experimentally visualized. The experiments were performed in a swirling flow of viscous fluid in optically transparent conical diffuser. Vortex visualization was facilitated by cavitation in the vortex core and carried out using high-speed video cameras. Kelvin waves of zero, first and second modes m = 0, 1, 2 were formed in packets as a result of reconnection due to vortex tube self-intersection. Kelvin waves were observed to form both on the helical vortex tube and the detached vortex ring and to propagate along the axis of the vortex tubes.
