As Bill said, Giff Beaton's "Dragonflies and Damselflies of Georgia and the Southeast" is a must-have for your needs. In fact, it's would be an excellent addition to any odonata enthusiast's library.

  I have Kurt's and Larry Rosche's books along with; "Dragonflies and Damselflies" of Massachusetts by Nikula, Loose and Burne; "Dragonflies through Binoculars" by Dunkle; "Beginner's Guide to Dragonflies" by Stokes and "Damselflies of the Northeast" by Lam.  Even though I'm in WV, Kurt's and the Mass, guide are very relevant to this area.   

  I think the Stokes guide is great not only for beginners, but due to it's portability, I usually have it in my back pocket when I'm looking for odes.  I can recommend all of the books I mentioned, but I'm still hoping that Ed Lam will do a "Dragonflies of the Northeast" to complement his superb damselfly guide.  Even though I've got five guides, some of the species in WV aren't in any of them.  Can someone recommend a guide that covers the SE?

  I would humbly recommend my field guide, "Dragonflies of the North Woods" as
  it is intended to cover, amongst other regions, the UP and the upper
  portions of the LP of Michigan.  If you are in southern MI, "Dragonflies and
  Damselflies of Northeast Ohio" by Larry Rosche will be helpful.

  Sorry for the parochial nature of this question, but I can't seem to  
  subscribe to the Great Lakes Odonata e-mail list, or I'd ask there.

  Can anyone recommend a guide to odonates of the Upper Midwestern  
  United States?  I'm spending the summer in Michigan, and would love to  
  pick up a field guide that focusses on that region, if there is one.
