findCirclesGrid ordering incorrect?

When using findCirclesGrid in python it seems that the ordering of the found circles is inverted. My found circles are currently ordered:

  • row wise: bottom to top
  • column wise: right to left

According to the documentation (at least how I interpret it) I expected it to be the other way around:

  • row wise: top to bottom
  • column wise: left to right

Several months ago I used this function in c++ and it seemed to behave in the manner as I expected (top to bottom, left to right).

Am I doing something wrong / interpreting the documentation incorrectly or is this a bug that should be reported?

Below a minimal working example which works on the attached bitmap.

edit: image did not get attached. Posted the image here Minimal working example:

import cv2
import numpy as np
img = cv2.imread('circ_min.bmp', 0)
shape = (5, 8)
blobPar = cv2.SimpleBlobDetector_Params()
blobPar.minArea = 1e4
blobPar.maxArea = 1e5
blobPar.minDistBetweenBlobs = 200
blobDet = cv2.SimpleBlobDetector_create(blobPar)
[found, cc] = cv2.findCirclesGrid(img, 

cv2.namedWindow('src', cv2.WINDOW_NORMAL)
img = cv2.cvtColor(img, cv2.COLOR_GRAY2BGR)
if found:
    for i in cc:, tuple(i[0]), 10, (0, 0, 255), -1)
        cv2.imshow('src', img)

This also occurs when using the findCirclesGrid from c++.
