    Shows two photographers standing underneath large shrouds, which cover all but their legs and the insect-like legs of the tripod supporting the camera. The caption plays up the similarity of the figures to strange insects, stating the 'Front and Back view of a very curious Animal that was seen going about loose the other day. It has been named by Dr. Gunther [probably Albert C L G Günther] "Elephans Photographicus"'.
