It is NOT an insect.
The object area is 3 times smaller in the first image compared to the second yet even with similar exposure settings (f/5.9 1/800 @ ISO-400 v.s. f/5.9 1/250 @ ISO-100) the object is 100% saturated in both images. Possible, but not likely, that a modern camera auto-exposure algorithm could be in error by 1.5 f-stops.
It is my experience that this is not a new phenomena. Over the years others experiencing atypical events sometimes post photographs to ATS that contain similar highly saturated objects.

Looks to me like an overexposed photo with an overblown highlight. If you look at the picture as a whole, you'll see that there are highlights all over the place. The grass, the bush behind it. The "UFO" just happen to be a particularly bright spot, possibly something on the ground reflecting light just right for the camera viewpoint.
But of course, there is a possibility that the bush is actually an alien base and those are the smaller fighter crafts defending it.
