A flutist in the marching band portion of the King's birthday parade.

A bit of a lucky break as the marching band stopped and played at my end of the street. On this hot day, I was leaking liters of fluids in just a shirt and shorts... I can't believe this poor fellow's still standing in spite of wearing a fuzzy hat and full-length felt uniform!
