A federal budget-related delay has pushed back the opening of many of the park's seasonal facilities until May 17. Acadia saw a 5 percent funding cut of it's roughly $7.8 million budget on March 1. The cut represented the National Park Service’s share of federal sequestration. (AP Photo/Robert F. Bukaty, File)

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 lightning strike in Pakistan, an elderly Afghan man at a brick factory near Kabul, dancing in the street in Amsterdam to celebrate the first new Dutch monarch in 33 years, first lady Michelle Obama with comedian Conan O'Brien, and an early morning scene from Churchill Downs ahead of the Kentucky Derby.
