This bug, I guess, is called a Jewel Bug, Manoj.
I have not photographed it myself but have seen people from Bangalore doing it frequently.
Your image is quite sharp and clear. The BG of a reddish brown leaf serves well to highlight the subject.
May I suggest you make a note on the species you show?
Well done and take care.

Hi Manoj,
excellent job,TFS.

Hello Manoj,

Good focus. Very nice purple background for this green bug.


Hello Manoj,
that's a brilliant picture of this bug.
I tried a workshop and hope that you will like the result.
Best wishes,

  • Great

Hi Manoj,
This indeed is a Jewel Bug, as Mr. Ram has identified. Wonderful shot with lovely colours and perfect lighting. The reddish leaf as BG works wekk here in highlighting the subject. I like the shadow too. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.
