National Wildlife Federation Field Guide to Insects and Spiders & Related Species of North America by Arthur V. Evans
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I'm a bug geek. There, I said it. I've been interested in the creepy bastards since I was a kid and I've been photographing them ever since I bought my first digital camera years ago.
Bug books have been hit or miss for me in the past. Either they try to take on too much, are too narrow in scope, or just have unclear pictures. This book is by far the best insect and arachnid guide I've ever read.
Each page has at least two entries on it. The entries are very detailed and the pictures are at a high enough resolution that it's fairly easy to identify the bugs I've photographed in the past. Also, the cover is waterproof in case I need to take this handy little book into the rainforest with me.
As far as insect books go, this one is going to be hard to top. Five out of five stars.
