Good Book! Jun 2, 2008
I like this book but the only thing I do not like is that the pictures are in the front of the book and the information on the insect is in the back of the book. I would rather have the picture and information about the insect on one page.
I Love This Book Mar 7, 2008
I refer to it at least a couple of times a week & recommend it to any other amateur. Bought this copy for my nephew, who also loves it. The illustrations & information may not impress an expert, but I find it well-organized & easy to use. I've never seen an insect that I couldn't identify by using it (tho' I live in LA, not exactly the insect capital of the world). Also-the photos are gorgeous!
On par with all the Audobon Guides Aug 30, 2007
Very informative like all the Audobon Guides, and lots of photos, which really helps. Only caveat is that I'd like to see them have several volumes to cover ALL insects in North America, as there are too many to cover in just this one guide. Although I am aware that they have separate guides for butterflies.
National AuddubonGuide ;to North American insects &Spiders Aug 11, 2007
Absolutely wonderful !!! my dinnette has windows to the West and North, and every morning while having my coffee I find myself referring to it as the butterflies and bees and birds share my lovely flowering trees and bushes...along with the ground squirrels, chip monks, rabbits and multiple birds.....if people could only take their example, it could be a better world.
a good solid field guide Jun 1, 2007
As with all the Audubon Field Guides, so with this one: The color photos are the best of the guides; the durable construction with leatherette cover is very good; and the information is generally accurate and descriptive. The index is organized to cross refererence the color plates with the descriptions - it's pretty straight forward when looking up a bug. Yet, the summaries, as in all the Audubon books, are just too brief; this may be the most glaring of its deficiencies. Any future edition could use a fleshing out on the details.
The Audubon books are better than the Stokes and Peterson guides. As a general all round guide, these books have a place in any naturalist's library.
