I stepped outside at around 10:00 pm and found this juvenile Raccoon sitting on a windowsill just off of our front porch. I surprised him, and he tried to conceal himself by squeezing into the corner of the window frame. Not too effective, but very comical!

I was able to approach to within 4 feet of this juvenile Raccoon while taking pictures. After snapping a few shots, I went back inside to get my kids, but by the time we came back out the Raccoon had fled.

It is my estimation that this Raccoon was born early in the spring, making him roughly 4 months old at the time of the photograph.
