Instagram is an app and it doesn’t send a referrer. It's a huge pain. Google Analytics can’t tell where the visitor came from at a glance. This is part of the problem known as “dark social” in the analytics world.
If you still have this problem I recommend using UTM parameters or if you don't like these ugly URL's then it's even better to use the GTM (a bit more technical). Thanks to the lookup table and URL fragments you're able to track Instagram traffic as well. Links are pretty like this one: mysite.com/#instagram
Hope this helps you and the community as well.
