How would you change this shot as to freeze wings?

I used a Canon 7D MKII and 60mm lens with flash 1/250 and f16.
Maybe a faster shutter speed?

Is the flash being used as fill light? With flash as key I would look in the manual to find the actual flash duration at different power levels. With flash as fill you'll need HSS and, gosh, maybe 1/2000 to stop bee wings.

I missed that you were using flash! Honestly you could shoot this with natural light and a wider fstop.

I don't see any exif data so I don't know what ISO this is but it looks pretty low from what I can tell. Without using a flash, I would open up the aper as much as possible to let in more light on the subject and not worry about the bg being in focus and maybe bracket with different apers if the aper is too shallow on the bee itself. Definitely increase the s.s. Do some bracketing with s.s. also to see what looks best for the light at hand. GL!
