Audubon books are wonderful. They are easy to read with gorgeous photos and organized in a way that makes the creature you're searching for easy to find. This particular book I bought because my 2 year old loves bugs and because I wanted to identify a particular beetle that had invaded my house in late winter. I found the bug in just a few minutes of search. I also have the Eastern birds book and it is just as useful as this one. Great series!

This Audubon field guide is a terrific guide! It is very simple to use, describes in great detail, complete with beautiful photographs of every insect in the book! This is the only guide you will ever need! Being a wildlife major, I have just about every audubon guide there is! I recommend them for anybody from novice to expert! I gladly give this book 5 stars plus an additional 5!!! They don't get better than this one!

Excellent illustrations and descriptions and a good reference tool. I wish I had gotten a more current or updated publication, but I am pleased with the book.
