I took this for a bug contest on deviantart.com . I really like it but I feel there is something missing or something I could have done to make it better.

I think that with a simply subject you need to do one of two things, either play to the simplicity or compensate for the simplicity. Here you have compensated for the simplicity by using an interesting crop which works to some extent.

To really make the picture stand out, I think that you need to compensate even more by perhaps trying to bring out it's best feature - maybe the eyes? Get down low and take the from the front? Or maybe it's wings from the side? Obviously this would be hard to do - making it a complex shot of a simple subject.

Going to the other extreme and playing to the simplicity I think that you would need a perfectly symetrical shot on a single colour background. Making a simple looking shot of a simple subject?

Ignoring the fact of course that it's not easy to make the bugger stay still for any of this...

actually it's a great macro pic..especially bcoz the object is extra2 tiny.. ..but i think u can still improve the sharpness.. coz the leg still a bit blur.. n maybe u can find another angle.. just experiment with it.. n u might get more gorgeous pic..
