Editor's Pick

For its February issue, National Geographic commissioned photographer David Liittschwager to document life in "one cubic foot." Liittschwager planted a 12-inch cubic green metal frame at various sites around the globe-from Central Park to Moorea, for three weeks at a time, photographing each creature that passed through its bounds. The result was this interactive photogallery of more than a thousand organisms, and a simultaneously broad and closeup view of the world's biodiversity.
