I read a number of reference books when I'm writing certain novels. This is one that I looked at for info on butterflies. I was drawn into the info on dragonflies (a personal fav), mayflies, beetles and other insects like bees. A clear guide that helped me get a baseline on my research! Read full review

Although I don't use this as much as my other identification books for insects, this seems to have a lot of the bugs that are hard to identify. This has excellent illustrations. Read full review
