Holi Spring! होली

Cute Husband and I were lucky enough to be in India for Holi, or the Festival of Colors.
Holi is a Hindu festival to celebrate the arrival of Spring.
The best part of this merry making holiday is the ritual of throwing or applying of colored powders and colored water on friends and family. We were birding in Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary (Keoladeo Ghana Natiuonal Park) at daybreak and these gentleman had already started the fun..... and included us in the celebration!
Happy Spring!
