Töyhtöhyyppä is there. In this region, it is time for the general. It nests in open fields and some farmers have to move their hives from the side to be able to do work in the fields.

And I thought they were just black and white......lovely frame.

@Nigel: The feather's physical structure acts like a diffraction grating, giving the splashes of colour. (i.e. it's not a colour produces by a natural dye). To see it, you need the sun behind you, and as strong as possible-and they need to be somewhat sideways on to you....that's why most folk think that they are black and white
Oh! it is beautiful. A superb image as I like. Good day *****.

un superbe plumage arc en ciel!! :)

very nice & beautiful!!!!
That is a handsome bird! Nice reflection too. I'm assuming this is breeding plumage?

@Julie L. Brown: this was shot in May 2010, so I guess this would be "Left over" breeding plumage. The colours are as much to do with the angle of the sun and camera as the time of year(Just like magpies and starlings look black, unless you get the angle right)
Superb portrait of a lapwing, love those rainbow wings

LOVE these birds - when they arrive in my hometown in Scotland it signals the beginning of spring. That irridescence on it's wing is just spectacular!
Wow, never seen one if these before. What a gorgeous shot of a very unusual looking bird. Well done!
