Sunlight silhouettes a Humpback Whale in the Caribbean Sea.

A massive Humpback whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) hovers just under the surface of the Caribbean Sea where late afternoon sunlight plays across its back. Humpback whales migrate to the Caribbean from all over the Atlantic each winter to mate or give birth.
