Ruff, feeding

This palaeartic winters in Africa and South Asia but once in a while, we get a straggler (two, in this sighting) in Borneo.  I have never seen a Ruff in breeding plumage.  Still, you get what you can.  I consider myself lucky to get this photo of a male feeding,  its back feathers raised.  It was moving around in a wet paddy and I assume it is partial to rice and seeds of various grass.
