Wrong photo shown on fin whale page

Hi. Your fin whale page ( has a photograph that shows a whale with a very upright dorsal fin. Fin whales have a more backswept dorsal fin, with a shallower angle to the leading edge. I would have to see more photos of this whale and know where it was taken to tell you what species this was for certain, but it might be a Bryde's whale (B. brydei), which has a similar dorsal fin to the one shown in the photo.
