Amber freezes insects, a pair of loving flies are trapped, and maintain a”fit” posture for 41 million years

For these small insects and other organisms, the life span is limited. When these organisms die, they will be quickly decomposed by microorganisms, but when these organisms are trapped in some resins, they may become amber together with these resins. Fossils can be preserved for a long time. Although this pair of flies has been trapped for 41 million years, their remains are still relatively good, and their legs, feet, wings and other limbs are well maintained.
