“Morning Fox Squirrel”

“Snapshot Saturday”

Daguerreotype of traditional hunter with a fox squirrel
On a bright fall morn, ‘Old Turkey Feathers,’ a battered Northwest trade gun, brought a plump fox squirrel to the table. Another chattering squirrel caught the woodsman’s attention and drew him deeper into the forest. A daguerreotype image captured the moment, two ridges east of the River Raisin, Old Northwest Territory, 1795.
