The da Vinci Code

In Leonardo da Vinci's notebooks on flight he considered many different flying animals – birds of course, but also a moth, a flying fish, and a dragonfly.  (Actually, Dennis Paulson notes that the fish shown on this manuscript page is a gurnard, a fish that never leaves the water.  Still, it has incredible pectoral fins.  Thanks, Dennis!)
