Hi Fritz! You have done well to capture this butterfly. Unavoidable but the busy background does detract somewhat from the insect.

I suggest cropping the photo closer, removing the slight blue cast and then using levels and curves to try and tone down the remaining background and bring out the butterfly.

I've uploaded a mod which reflects my comments, which I hope you find helpful.
