Hello Ildar,
A nicely composed image with good detail of the cicada. The BG isn't the best, but this is something that you don't have a lot of control over. You are already at F/3.7 so you can't go much lower to try and blur it out.
A tighter crop might have been a better choice, but then you would have missed most of the web which gives a nice natural effect. Decisions, decisions, this is what makes it so interesting!! TFS.
