Can anybody explain? (D7100 image)

Just getting more familiar with D7100, after almost 5 years with D700 (keeping that one too)

We have one of the coldest winter here and lots of snow.

So I took some photos about the dunes of snow in our yard. I used three lenses (Zeiss 100/2, Nikon 70-200 VRII and Nikon 300/4) and in each I noticed some weird reflections, similar as shape, only difference is in size because the length of the focal lenses.

The very colourful  reflections on the snowflakes are the funny things. I was expecting something round, but they are not!

Original image.

The shape of the reflections are more visible in this screenshot at 100% magnification.

The shapes are like stamps, are all the same (well, almost...)

What it is happening here? It is from the sensor?

Just wondering any explanation for this?
