Here's your look at highlights from the weekly AP photo report, a gallery featuring a mix of front-page photography, the odd image you might have missed and lasting moments our editors think you should see.

This week's collection includes a member of a pro-Russian self-defense force taking down a Ukrainian Navy flag as another raises the Russian flag at the Ukrainian Navy headquarters in Crimea, a woman kissing an Irish Air Corps Pipe and Drum member on the cheek during Savannah, Ga.'s 190-year-old St. Patrick's Day parade, snow being plowed behind a jogger at the Washington Monument and a religious image tucked behind the body armor of a guard on duty at an anti-government march in Caracas, Venezuela.
