Rod Frederick - The Emperor's Ball

“I’m surprised that 45 penguins made it into 'The Emperors’ Ball,'” Rod Frederick acknowledges,
“but it seemed like every time I came back to the easel, another had shown up. That’s the tricky
thing about flightless birds, they waddle in low so you don’t see them coming.

“Emperor penguins, in fact all penguins, live in the Southern Hemisphere. A flightless bird of this
size could never have developed in the Arctic with hunters such as polar bears, foxes and wolves.
But Emperors thrive in the Antarctic where there are no four-legged predators.

“People love penguins and today I find myself especially attracted to them. I don’t fly or jump as
high as I used to on the basketball court, so maybe that’s it. But there is something special about
them. Think about, the guys, just the guys, who stay home to watch the eggs over a long dark
winter where the temperature can fall to -40, while the girls enjoy a two-month long ladies night
out. I bet there is some serious celebrating when the summer finally comes along and that’s
the idea behind 'The Emperors’ Ball.'”
