I keep inheriting little notebooks and felt tip pens in various places, and so when I get the chance it is fun to do a little sketching here and there.
My latest ones were done with no visual reference, and golly gee it shows! I couldn't remember how the stripes on a red admiral went, what actual colour a tawny mining bee was, and didn't have a purple pen to "illustrate" a buddleia.
Still, I kind of like the results, and feel like I've upgraded my work to about seven year old levels, which is nice.
I also guess drawing them makes up for not actually seeing them, these dark cold months.
