Interesting Visitor In Yard

We found this interesting visitor in the yard. Is it a larvae or insect? We do not know, but it is an interesting photographic subject. It is only a little over 1/4″ long and was on an interesting vine flowering near the pond. If anyone knows what it is, let us know. It was windy and moving in the wind, so I shot short bursts hoping to get a few sharp images. I added a little fill flash to open the shadows.
