This 'Pond Painting Art - Waders in a Pond Canvas Print' shows two people in waders and waterproof boots enjoying themselves in a pond in this beautiful, impressionistic view of splashing about in water (and probably doing serious stuff at the same time).
You can see the light between the boots and the water and a net for seeing what is in the pond.
There is nothing quite like getting busy in nature.
Pulling on your waterproofs and getting involved.
We all knew it as children. We couldn't wait to jump in puddles! But sometimes, along the way we lost sight of that magic.
In a way a pond is like a giant puddle!
Only it has more going on, and is probably deeper (unless it is a very weird, twilight zone kind of puddle!)
Botanists know this. They never lose their love for the great outdoors, or what lies in wait for them in random stretches of water (coming equipped with only a net and a great deal of patience).
According to the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics there were 14,150 'Soil and Plant Scientists', 35,600 'Agricultural and Food Scientists' employed in the United States in May 2019 and collectively over a million people employed in 'Life, Physical and Social Science Occupations' (see a list here). With them predicting it as one of the fastest growing areas of the economy in terms of new jobs (7% growth predicted between 2018 and 2028).
So, being out in nature and jumping in puddles is growing as a source of jobs.
Now, that's nice! But what those statistics don't capture is people wading about in ponds! Looking at sciencey stuff (technical term) and animals and thinking to themselves. "Boy I'm glad I do this for a living!"
And sometimes this 'wading about in ponds' lark pays off big time.
In 2009 for example, Jeremy A. Feinberg was studying for his Doctorate and discovered a new species of Leopard Frog in New York City (along with a team of others).
Jeremy had apparently been hanging out, listening for the mating call of the Southern Leopard Frog (as you do), when he discovered this otherwise visually identical frog that called out for its mate in a different way.
Upon further examination (and genetic testing) he discovered that this wasn't simply a random frog with a throat condition, but rather an entirely different species.
How exciting is that!
If I had been him I would have called it the 'Jeremy A Feinberg Frog' in order to create my own piece of immortality. But he was more restrained and it ended up being called the significantly less catchy name of 'Rana kauffeldi', or 'Atlantic Coast Leopard Frog'.
Actually, in fairness to Jeremy, he was extremely fair I would say in the naming of 'his' frog (if you find it, then you get to name it, them's the general rules).
Its species name, kauffeldi, is derived from the name of Staten Island herpetologist Carl Frederick Kauffeld, who in 1936 proposed that there could be a third species of leopard frog inhabiting the New York Tri-State Area specifically Staten Island. The author team that described the species in 2014 christened it after Kauffeld in honor of him.
Very fair! Go Jeremy!
Anyway, bottom line... if you to aspire to finding random new species of frogs (in New York or elsewhere), or other pond life, then its pretty much obligatory to have this piece of wading / pond art on your walls for good luck.
Come here froggie, froggie, froggie...
