Many macroholics love insects and/or flowers. The book linked to below covers both of these topics. The book is Anatomy of a Rose: Exploring the Secret Life of Flowers. It talks extensively about flowers and reproduction, and there is a lot of interesting discussion of pollination and the relationships between insects and flowers. I bought a remaindered "Bargain" copy from amazon.com for $3.98--Amazon appears to have sold out of those, but the book is still very good and very readable. The book is written in a very personal essay style, it is not a textbook or written in a scientific fashion. This makes it easy and pleasant to read. It also is written as a serious of short, self-contained essays, which makes it easier for busy people. Amazon appears out of the $3.98 copies, but you can still buy it very inexpensively ($2 or $3 plus postage) from some of their associated vendors:
