super sketch - must have demanded a lot of patience to capture and there seems to be a lot of activity TO capture!

Andre,

May I ask what materials you use to do your sketches. Your skill is amazing. Great work.

You caught that spike I show in my animation at about 7:00 on the limb! Timing looks right! Great sketch!

Thank you so much all. Welcome to my sketching Ken. I promise I'll post a pic of my tools this weekend.

Warren. While sketching, I saw the rapid flare we both caught.

Ken.

It's clear I missed posting a picture of my tools. Sorry about this my friend. I totally forgot this promise. Actually I'm at work until sunset, so tomorrow I'll check for that.

Andre.

Thank you Frank.

Fifteen more sketches and I'll reach 300 as now I'm already at 285. Imagine wiht large proms like yesterday and today sunday 1st of april, I would have made several close ups. But as I'm at work and it's fully overcast here, I'm missing a very nice action up there.

Andre.
