Fossilised insects in amber. Amber is fossilised resin that was produced by various coniferous trees. The sticky resin trapped small insects and other animals as it solidified and hardened, preserving their bodies for millions of years. This is one of the few processes by which fossils are preserved complete with all of their soft tissues.
