Caption: Birds in flight. Historical artwork of birds in flight drawn by the Italian artist and scientist Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). The patterns of the birds' flight can be seen together with his notes. The notes are in the mirror hand-writing which he used to keep his work secret. Leonardo realised the importance of precise scientific observation. His interest in bird flight influenced some of his designs for flying machines.
