field guide is its usefulness and fortunately, I ve taken quite a few photos of insects and spiders Here come the bug pictures Buckeye Rabid Wolf Spider Robber Fly Periodical Cicada Question Mark Red Admiral All photos courtesy of Dantastic Photos Beautiful guidebook littered with photos and facts, from the cute and delicate moths and butterflies to the creepy and parasitic fleas and maggots , to the downright alien looking horned caterpillars or phymatinae The world of insects is both simple and complex, and there is always something new to be learned from them, rather than feared about them

forinfo I also like that they ve placed bugs that look like something else into the wrong order in plates section If you see something that looks like a bee and check out the picture section, it s

or family I haven t come across anything that I couldn t at least hone in on using this guide.Cons 1 Really old This hasn t been updated since 1989 In entomology years it s an antique Come on Audubon, get with the updating 2 The pictures are likewise dated and could definitely be clearer andmodern looking.3 The section on spiders is kind of useless, even though it s still fun to look at Spiders are way to big a group to have a measly 30 or 40 species listed So in your next edition, Audubon, make an insect guide and a spider guide Thank you This was from my Grandma, who volunteers at the library and picks me up anything to do with food, bugs, or crochet Thanks, Grandma, good find For some people, the first reaction to spotting an insect or spider will be to squish it or run away screaming For

each photo Images are grouped by body type and visual similarity, so it is possible to quickly locate the particular insect or spider you are looking for Metamorphosing insects are shown as both juveniles and adults, so it is possible to identify a caterpillar from its photo and cross reference it to its adult form.This is also a very popular book with children, who are fascinated by the sometimes creepy, somerimes beautiful photos I carry this around with me all summer and it s one of the best ideas I ve ever had Now I m not afraid of bugs, because I know them Carried this book with me every time my brother and I went adventuring around the farm We would spend hours in search of every creepy crawly This book was our go to for answers. National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Insects and Spiders National Audubon Society Field Guides by National Audubon Society is a fabulous field guide on insects and spiders in North America With tons of pictures, and TONS of information on EACH insect and spider, you will be able to learn about pretty much any insect or spider you find in North America This is a great field guide, and would be great for reference I would read it again.2015 Summer Reading Review This is the field guide I used most with my 7th grade students when I lead them in their term project of an insect collection The excellent color photographs aided the student in identifying their collections I had them get genus and species for awhile then relented to just get the family name, which for them as novices was difficult enough. Understandably limited in the amount of information they can cover due to limited size of the books , the National Audubon Society Field Guides are amazing detailed for the animals they do encompass I love them and often carry them around to help identify objects of my curiosity.
