|Used "burn" tool, to tone down the exposure of the leaves a little.|
Reduced lightness and saturation in the green channel.
Hopefully, the effect looks fairly natural?
Masked the butterfly ("magic wand mask tool @ tolerance 40) and adjusted input levels in highlights and midrange and output levels in shadow range to bring more "light" into the subject, taking care not to overdo it. Increased saturation a little to counter the colur "wash out" resulting from the output levels adjustment. Remove mask.
USM, pixels 0.3, levels 0, 150%.
Used "blur" tool, to selectively remove some sharpening noise from the background.
The effect is fairly subtle, but hopefully the PP is not too obvious?
