All things bright and beautiful: what photographer found in one cubic foot

All things bright and beautiful: What photographer found in one cubic foot | Science | The Guardian
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Just how much life can you find in an ecosystem of one cubic foot? That is the question photographer David L­iittschwager set out to answer when he took a 12-inch metal frame to a range of different environments on land and in water, in tropical climes and temperate regions and began to chart the living organisms.

The answer? An astonishing amount. In each place he visited, the photographer, best known for his large images of rare animals and plants, was amazed at the diversity and abundance of life that passed through such a small area.

I wonder if this might not be a good idea for a photo contest some day very soon.
