We present a densely sampled R‐band light curve of the optical afterglow of GRB 030329 obtained during the period 15.5–23 hours after the burst. This dataset allows us to search for short time‐scale fluctuations that must be present at some level due to inhomogeneities in the circumburst medium and/or if the afterglow is intrinsically variable.
