It is hard to think of an improvement. I like the exposure where it is as it is since helps hold those rich colors without blowing any out. I might try raising the shadows a bit in the darkest area with a radial just to get a little more of the green in the darks, but it might not turn out to be a plus.But really, it's beautiful just as it is.

"There is no light like back light," the richness and saturation for me are just right, and lately I have been using the saturation and luminance sliders in HSL on greens (specifically) to pull them down so they don't distract from the colors of the flowers (and in this case the flutterby). I always fuss about sharpness issues with my own stuff, often discarding an otherwise good shot because it's not barbed-wire sharp, but at this magnification it looks fine!
