Dan Gadberry’s title of this photo of critters on a sugary lollipop: “Suckers for Sweets.”

For our staff, there is only one activity as enjoyable as looking through all your excellent photo entries, and that’s reading them.

Sometimes the photo titles are just so cute or clever that they add a whole other dimension to the storytelling. I thought I’d use this space to share some of them — and a few more photos — with you.

Tanya Horn’s title of this patriotic scene with a flag and flowers: “Blessed to be Raised

On the receiving end of all these Natural State photos, like photographer Tanya Horn (see caption left), we certainly feel blessed to live in Arkansas, too.

Wishing you a memorable new year full of photo-worthy moments
