This will make you flip out. Shocking new drone footage reveals a Wales marina is the spitting image of a dolphin, stunning viewers online. Photographer Rhys Jones was capturing images with his drone over Pwllheli, Wales, (Llŷn Peninsula, Gwynedd County) realizing for the first time that the UK harbor bears [a] resemblance to the beloved aquatic creature.

“In all my flight time over the Pwllheli harbor, I have never noticed this as much as last night. Spectacular! Once seen, it cannot be unseen. I have taken many photos of the beautiful area we live in. I have been over the marina many times but, only just noticed this amazing landscape on this occasion.”

Rhys Jones

For two years, Jones has used his drone to take photos as a hobby, flying over this marina several times and never noticing its mammalian shape. The photos made waves on his Facebook page, Pwllheli Drone Photos, this month.

Three hundred, fourteen years ago, today…

The Treaty of Union is the name usually, now, given to the agreement which led to the creation of the new state of Great Britain [.] [It stated] that England, which already included Wales, and Scotland were to be “United into one Kingdom by the name of Great Britain[.]” At the time it, was more often referred to as the Articles of Union. The details of the treaty were agreed on [July 22], 1706 and separate Acts of Union were then passed by the parliaments of England and Scotland to put the agreed articles into effect. The political union took effect on [May 1], 1707.

Queen Elizabeth I of England and Ireland, last monarch of the Tudor dynasty, died without issue on [March 24], 1603 and the throne fell at once […] to her first cousin twice removed, James VI of Scotland, a member of House of Stuart and the only son of Mary, Queen of Scots. By the Union of the Crowns in 1603, he assumed the throne of the Kingdom of England and the Kingdom of Ireland as King James I. This personal union lessened the constant English fears of Scottish cooperation with France in a feared French invasion of England. After [the] union, the new monarch, James I and VI, sought to unite the Kingdom of Scotland and the Kingdom of England into a state which he referred to as “Great Britain”. Nevertheless, Acts of Parliament attempting to unite the two countries failed in 1606, 1667 and 1689.
