Looks like a dragonfly nymph, they crawl onto land to morph. It looks like the the back is beginning  to split . The damselflies will be crawling out and emerging as well.

You're welcome. Its a great photograph that probably only a fly tying nut would appreciate!

it is the first sighting like this for me. I was sitting there minding my own business and spotted this creature walking directly towards me. It was still hard to get a good photo. Thanks again frank with the ID help!
