The following diagrams and pictures represent how a resin producing tree might have protected itself from an insect and how that insect and a spider were entombed in the resin as a result. The fly may have been resting on the surface of the tree and was partially covered in a resin flow. The spider may have seen this fly struggling and saw it as easy prey, not knowing that the fly was trapped and was trying to escape from the resin. As the spider approached the fly, it may have been to covered in the resin and both fly and spider were both totally entombed.
