Their brains would also work on a different time frame similar to fly's so the speed at which your had is coming down is slower in their perception of time so they have what they would consider to be considerable time to escape from your hand. If you were using a piece of newspaper the force of the air would also encourage them to move at an increased speed pushing them away from the point you were aiming.

The distance from their brain to their wings is a short distance so the response time would be less than a hunan with a distance much greater from brain to hand .
