Unfortunately the image didn't make it through the forum/mailing-list.

Are you using a flash? If so, try moving it off-camera, e.g. wth an
extension cable.

If the image is over-exposed and details are lost, an image editor
can't really restore them. But try setting your camera to save in raw
format. If you're on Linux, use darktable, and/or RawTherapee, to open
the raw image file and see if the details can be recovered.

If it's reflections not from the insect's carapace but from glass, a
polarizing filter on the lens may help. They are available for a wide
variety of cameras. Or, use a piece of black card to shade the glass
from the light.
