Maybe this weird critter is a stonefly nymph, but I'm not putting down money on it.  The information on stonefly nymphs, however, is rather sparse, and photos thereof (mostly of dead specimens) are hard to come by.  There are 20+ families, none of which look that much like it.  Anyone knows please contact us!

Mystery aquatic arthropod nymph, Durham, NC,  2/23/07.  It's sort of like a stonefly, sort of like a mayfly, but that may ever remain a mystery due to the unfortunate quality of the photo.
