       Some printers can only work from JPG files. Others want TIF files, or some other format. Make sure you check before going to the trouble of downloading these files. If you want an image in a format I have not provided, let me know, and we'll work something out.
 
       The large JPG files are for printing; I have used minimal compression to ensure optimal quality. I recommend that you download them to your hard drive or CD rather than attempting to view them in your browser. Thumbnail images are provided for viewing. GIFs are for use on your web page.
 
Miami Blue #1. "Butterflies for Peace" with "Easter," a poem by my grandfather
Joyce Kilmer (author of Trees and Other Poems); white letters on blue circle. Printing this shaped poem on an image of the Miami Blue Butterfly was the idea of my sister Anne Kilmer, an enthusiastic promoter of "Butterfly Gardens." Image suitable for 8" X 10" print. There is a wide border to allow for cropping.

Miami Blue #9. "Cyclargus thomasi bethunebakeri" ~ The butterfly with its common and scientific name, female designation, and wing-span range. I found a field guide that says the Miami Blue can be as small as 3/4", but I guess 7/8" is close enough. Image suitable for 8" X 10" print. There's no circle, no border. You can use it as is, or have the printer drop out the blue background so the T-shirt color will be the background, and the butterfly will appear to float in the air. (I hope this is true.) Make sure you discuss this with the printer. Sized for an 8" X 10" print at 200 pixels per inch (you can fit a lot of dots into a pixel), with room for cropping.

Miami Blue #10. "Cyclargus thomasi bethunebakeri" ~ As above, but HUGE file for best possible print. Sized for a 10" X 10" print at 150 pixels per inch. Browsers won't display Tif files; just download the file to your hard drive and open it in your graphics program.

Miami Blue #13. "Miami Blue" butterfly without text; mid-sized transparent GIF for your web site. It should float on your own background color. Test it to see if it looks right. If not, use one of the non-transparent GIFs above. If you use "#8FE9FC" as your background color, the images that do not have borders should appear to float anyway.
