As an life long active birder, I am pretty familiar with field guides in general. This one is simply a masterpiece and not only is this the best field guide for damselflies, I think it may be the best field guide of any kind I have ever seen. The artwork is superb, but the organization and presentation of field marks is what sets this guide apart. For example, at first glance all bluets look alike, but the guide clearly points out the differences and makes it almost effortless to identify the different species with confidence. I am also impressed with the fact that there is a lot of technical detail for experts, but the guide is very accessible for beginners. My only complaint is I wish the book had wider coverage. I am fortunate to live in the area covered by this guide, but its hard to go to other areas and not have Ed's book to guide me! How about it Ed? A national guide? Extremely highly recommended for beginners through experts.

I take pictures of wildlife as a hobby, particularly macro shots of insects and spiders. I'm also a biologist by trade, so I'm always interested in correctly identifying each of the species I photograph. Damsels and dragons are particularly photogenic, but they have such phenotypic variability that they are frustrating to identify. I have Dragonflies and Damselflies of the Northeast, but it's really not the best at pointing out the tiny differences that can be used to differentiate specific species. Plus, I'm a visual person so I like to see the differences, not just read about them in the text. So, anyway, I really couldn't use that book to confidently ID damselflies.

But Ed Lam's book is just what I needed. He's included images of so many of the phenotypic variations and provides excellent visual keys for figuring out the tough species! This book is an ideal example of how a field guide should be. It's a shame that it's only available through resellers, but I guess the topic is too specific to reach a wide audience. I really hope that some day he makes a book for NE dragonflies too.

This is the best damselfly field guide available for anyone interested in the odonates. This guide has been very helpful to me in my identification of species for the New York State Dragonfly and Damselfly survey for which I am a volunteer surveyor. This book has also come in handy for my job as a Wildlife Biologist during site surveys.

I recently have gotten into Odonates and now can identify most dragonflies I see, but found the damselflies rather intimidating and frustrating. No more. The chrystal-clear images have given me more confidence and motivation to learn more.

Ed Lam is an incredibly fine artist.His work is clear,colorful and accurate.He helps me to understand the differences between dragonflies and damselflies.This is far from easy,as they are very small,and are best viewed with binoculars,and they fly very fast out of sight!Before I bought his book,I had little knowledge of the anatomy of these charmers,and really had no ability to guess what they are.Now I can sit by the pond with Damselflies of the Northeast,and bit by bit,I'm learning!
