1. Adjusted levels to make the image brighter
2. Used a neutral(grey( point to get the colors right as they seemed a bit too cold.

All I did was to put a black point under the lower wing. I find it improved the contrast and colors and cleared the light haze.
Hope you find it useful.

With the high resolution photo it would be better, as the photo you posted is highly copressed.
I made a severe "shadows and highlights" adjust, lowered green saturations and finaly some levels and a frame.
Hope you like.
