A page from Leo’s notebooks. This one looks like it has been written on by someone else as well. He is comparing the wings between a dragon fly, bat, and a flying fish. The creepy guy grabbing the bat might have something to do with One of Leonardo’s ‘bestiaries’ where he says:

 “Unchastity: the bat, owing to unbridled lust, observes no universal rule in pairing, but males with males and females with females pair promiscuously, as it may happen.”
