Procreate looks good!
I hope you can focus this winter on finishing your almanac. In any event, have fun with it, and at least share what you come up with in an e-book version.

My bet is they will grow up to be a raptor specialist. Or ornithology taxidermist.

The creators who have admitted it were a college group specializing in CGI. All the science I don’t understand but they are very good and I’m sure will get an A on the project. The pros dissected the video frame by frame and were able to detect inconsistent shadow directions. So it’s safe to let your kids outdoors unless it’s on a school playground.

If something is too incredible to believe, one should not rush to do so.

The shadows don’t look right to me in the slow motion part of the video.
