The special category this month is "street scenes/people", and I have submitted two images for this category. I am not much of a street shooter so I don't really know what "street scenes/people" means. These two images certainly don't look like "street people" the way I usually think of the phrase. But they are certainly "people on the street". Hopefully the judge will find they fit the category.
Both were taken one morning on the streets of Banff, Alberta, Canada.
Full EXIF information can be obtained from the larger images posted on my Web site here:

I really like this flower image, and I submitted it for the "open" category. Because this is a cultivated flower, it is my understanding that this does not fit the requirements for a "nature" category image.
I think orange (or red, depending on how your monitor is calibrated) and green make a very nice combination of colors. I like the blurred background which keeps it from being distracting. And I think I captured a good exposure on the bee, as I can even see a bit of orange/red being reflected off the underside of the body.
