Fossilized insects!

Amber 1
Insects are attracted to the sweet odor of tree resin. They become trapped in the sticky material. They may look like they hatched yesterday, but they could be up to millions of years old.

Amber 2
No insects were harmed in the making of these photos. The leaves illustrate perfectly how insects can become trapped in tree resin which then hardens and becomes amber. The leaf on top may only leave an imprint in the resin, while the leaf on the bottom looks as though it is being encased.
