Pan Flute Player, MG_0183

The Pan Flute or Panpipes  was a musical wind instrument first used by the ancient Greeks. Most commonly played by shepherds.  The pan flute is named after Pan, the Greek god of nature often depicted with such an instrument. He is the god of shepherds. The pan flutes are a group of musical instruments based on the principle of the closed tubes, consisting of multiple pipes of gradually increasing length.  It is also a very popular instrument found in South America and often played by the natives in public areas.

I took that shot while visiting Baja California, Mexico in the summer.
