I took this photograph on the 31st of January on the Silver Bank humpback breeding ground between Dominican Republic and Turks and Caicos. Dr Jooke Robbins has matched this to Gulf of Maine whale Paravane, also cataloged by Allied Whales as HWC#8757, first identified in 2005 in the Gulf of Maine.

Below are four more fluke IDs taken that same week.
