Welcome to EPZ.

I love your first upload. I would have liked to have seen the whole creature, what I can see has wonderful details and colours.

Hello, Dhanesh, and a warm welcome to EPZ. Don't worry about being a beginner, we all had to start somewhere. This is a very unusual coloured grasshopper, love the blue eyes. The wings look particularly attractive and it's a shame you couldn't include them in your picture. Firstly, you needed to decide on your intention, which would be a closeup of a part of the creature, or the whole of it. Here you have good focus on the head and antenna, but the legs and body disappear out of the frame. Also, you have taken the picture from above, and it's often better to get at the same level as the creature for best effect. Just a few things to remember next time. Overall, this is a good picture and there's not a lot to critique about it. The colours, detail and exposure are good, but there is a blue cast. In my modification, I lightened the image, adjusted highlights and shadows, removed the blue cast, added contrast and sharpened. Only subtle changes. Keep up the good work.

Very unusually coloured Grasshopper!
You've captured the colours well with good vibrancy, though there is a slight blue colour cast. However this can easily be fixed in any half-decent editing software.
I think next time you encounter a bug like this, you should get down lower and get parallel to the subject as this gives a clearer and more pleasing view of the subject.
A great diagonal composition that always works well.
And finally the exposure is great too!

I've uploaded a modification too.

All the best!
