I have always been interested in these types of trapped artifacts in amber. Haven`t seen that one before, but I wish I had a few good ones.
I don`t think any better examples exist than these types of finds for the smaller creatures. You never know a small bird could have been covered over in raw amber millions of years ago but i`m not aware of any real examples like that. So the question remains what else is left unseen?
