Having mastered Bugs of Northern California, the perfect local book for beginners, I was ready to move on, and this book is the perfect next step--limited to California, but still very complete. There is one set of color plates, so those expecting color photos for every bug will be disappointed. However, what I love are the descriptions--they are well written and very informative. Even limited to California, there are more flies than I will ever be able to identify, yet the descriptions of their differences are still fascinating.

I purchased book hoping for more colored pictures of insects. The book has glossy insect pictures in the center of the book. However the pictures are small-8 pictures per page, not clear enough to see some markings and some pictures are a bit fuzzy. Not good quality. The text is good, the hand drawings are good but turning to a photograph is disappointing.

It's a great little book chalk full of information on bugs. Some color plates and some drawings of bugs but I love it.

Living in Oregon, this book works great for me. So many of our insects are the same or similiar. Good book, good service.
