A tough subject. I'm surprised the wings froze at 1/250. You might want to try 1/90 to get some wing blur and make it look like they are flying rather than mounted

I assume a flash was used or the wings would be a blur at 1/250 (they beat at 300-600 times a second (or twice that for up and down). Attached is a composite of 9 images at 1/1600 and  many still have blur at that shutter speed.

I am amazed the OP could get that close to one moving with a 90mm on a FF, mine were with a 420mm on a 2X crop.
