Dragonflies and Damselflies of Georgia and the Southeast
By Giff Beaton
University of Georgia Press, 2007
Finally got my copy in December 2007 and it is excellent:
  • outstanding photographs (most by the author)
  • beautiful graphic design
  • clear range maps and graphics showing phenology
  • detailed (but not ponderously detailed) text
Good job, Giff!

Damselflies of the North Woods
By Bob DuBois
Kollath-Stensaas Publishing, 2005
This is a very detailed and thorough field guide for all levels of damselfly enthusiast. There are literally dozens of illustrations of abdominal appendages and abdominal markings covering all of the relevant species. Extraordinary photographs, mostly by Mike Reese, show most (all?) of the different morphs.
Introductory chapters cover all aspects of damselfly life history. Well written.
Pocket sized and very portable.
Covers N Minnesota, N Wisconsin, the UP and N michigan and most of the wooded portions of Ontario. Covers many of the species east into New England.

Dragonflies (Wild Guide)
By Cynthia Berger, Amelia Hansen
Stackpole Books, 2004
An introduction to odonate life history and identification, illustrated with good-to-excellent color artwork. There is one especially useful illustration of abdominal appendages. Has species accounts for 45 notable species (6 damselflies and 39 dragonflies) from the Great Lakes area. These accounts are illustrated with excellent paintings by Amelia Hansen. These are portraits, showing life-like postures, and not meant to be detailed enough for fine points of identification. The species accounts give life history information as well as detailed explanations of scientific names--not seen in other popular works.
