A flurry of pigeons

A man watches a flurry of pigeons fly over the roof of his house on Feb. 19 as a rainbow forms in the sky over Mazar-i Sharif, Afghanistan.

Mazar-i Sharif means "Respected Shrine" but the city is known by tourists as the city of the blue mosque, a landmark located in the city center called the Shrine of Hazrat Ali.
