Recently, Timothy Ellis’s security camera caught a masked visitor in the backyard of his Washington state home. But it wasn’t of the bandit variety but a raccoon who treated him to a cute little moment that he was happy to catch on film.

In the video, the animal pauses in his nightly foraging and has an almost human reaction to the falling snow. The raccoon paws at the sky, trying to catch the snowflakes.

The raccoon is mesmerized by the flakes falling from the sky and is determined to catch them so he gets up on his hind legs and reaches as high as he can!

“[He] started pawing at the sky,” Ellis fondly shared. “When I realized he was actually chasing snowflakes, my main thought was that I definitely needed to save this video, because I knew other people would enjoy seeing it. It’s definitely not something you see every day.”

Raccoons are some of the most incredible creatures on earth. They have the ability to climb trees and live in them, they will eat almost anything that crosses their path, and they can be quite nosy when it comes to human activity.

Raccoons are nocturnal animals. They are omnivores and can eat nearly any kind of food, from meat to plants.

They are also known for their intelligence: they can be taught to perform simple tasks in order to obtain food rewards. To be honest, they’re incredibly easy to adore!

Because raccoons are generally afraid of humans, it’s rare that you’ll see one outside its natural habitat during the day, which makes the clip even more entertaining!

This raccoon will never forget its first time seeing snow, it seems. It’s so adorable that we almost want to go back in time and grab one for ourselves
