Perfect Shot: Stanford Dish Coyote

Photos by Robert Siegel

Robert Siegel, a professor of microbiology and immunology at Stanford University, also teaches a nature photography course. “I usually walk up at the Stanford Dish several times per week, at least in the pre-pandemic era. I take along a camera in case I see anything new or interesting.” Robert captured this Perfect Shot of a coyote late one afternoon: “He was clearly scrutinizing me as much as I was watching him.” To see more of Robert’s images, visit
