Perfect Pose

This kookaburra flew quietly into a tree while I was pottering around in the garden. I was unaware of his presence until he started 'laughing'. Luckily he gave me enough time to rip my gloves off, grab my camera and change the lens. He kept looking over his shoulder at me as if he was saying 'are you ready yet?' Luckily kookaburras are very patient birds!

127th Regiment 32nd Division I Corp Sixth Army 1944

A group photo taken in a battlefield camp in Papua New Guinea in 1944. My father (Pfc. Joseph C. Kelly) is standing second from right in field cap. I believe the man walking by the tent in the background is Maj. Gen. William H. Gill, Commander of the 32nd Division. I base this because of the hardware on his collar, plus it looks like him.




IMG_2459 Lachnocnema emperamus

There was a little greyish lycaenid butterfly which nervously flew between some rocks and some small bushes. One of this bushes (Annona senegalensis) was obviously choosen as its home as the butterfly came back for a rest repeatedly.

In the late morning sun I didn't see much through my camera display and back at the hotel room I was pretty surprised about all the colourful details especially the decent silvery shine which did remember me on former Christmas cards with their glittery silver coat - a Christmas butterfly at June!

Band of Brothers (Dad Pfc. Joseph C. Kelly second from left)

My father second from left just after extensive combat in the jungles of Papua New Guinea. I believe this photo was taken in Moratai in the Dutch East Indies It was in a letter post marked October 28, 1944. He was attached to the 127th Regiment of the 32nd Division and was still at Hollandia or Morotai waiting for the return of Naval forces to transport them as the second wave on Leyte. The battle of Leyte Gulf took place during this wait, which was the largest Naval battle in history. You can read about it here: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Leyte_Gulf

"Due to a shortage of naval transports, the Sixth Army Reserve was held at its staging areas (the 32D Division at Hollandia and the 77TH Division at Guam) until transports from the assault force could be freed to go pick them up. It was estimated that it would be mid-November by the time these two reserve divisions could be brought forward to Leyte."
