The tail of a North Atlantic Right Whale named Tips in the Bay of Fundy (on the northeast end of the Gulf of Maine) on Sept. 11, 2009. Tips was named by researchers who noticed white scarring on the ends of his flukes, and was known for his unusual tendency to swim circles around boats while blowing bubbles.
