Expert Answer:

A first harmonic is the fundamental frequency of the vibrating body or string in the case presented here.
For a string, it would half of one wavelength. That is there is one loop formed in first harmonic. 
Here you see two loops in second harmonic and similar three loops in third harmonic.
So harmonic depend on the length of wavelength.
