This photograph of Plumbeous Water Redstart was taken in Thimphu, Bhutan. These birds prefer to stay in a place which has fast moving streams with stones, especially streams with higher populations of insects. Seeing this bird fascinated me to take its photograph as it is rear to my county. I went to Bhutan for the Bhutan-Bangladesh Birding and Photo Exhibition, and didn’t miss the opportunity to take some bird photographs from Bhutan.

Photographer: Saniar Rahman Rahul (Dhaka, Bangladesh) Registered
Saniar Rahman Rahul was the first winner for ‘Photo of the Month Award’ in June 2010. He was fascinated by seeing his father taking pictures with a camera while his family was in Iraq during his childhood. Later in life, in 1997, while he became very much attached with his profession of ‘graphic design’, Rahul rediscovered the creative side of photography. He started his career as a professional graphic designer in October of 1995, in a pre-press house called Color Scan, which is one of the pioneers in the pre-process printing media in Bangladesh. Afterwards, he moved to Power Point, another pre-press house. Before he finally settled into advertising, he also worked in an IT company called Abtab IT. Moving to advertising from printing media was a big step for him. In 2005, he joined G3, a special wing of Gray Worldwide. Two years later, he moved to Paper Rhyme. Now he is working as the Art Director of Grey World Wide, one of the ten largest advertising agencies in the world.
