Just noticed this little creature swimming in the water where I am rooting a vine. Any ideas?

I can't see it but suspect it's mosquito larvae.

If it's a water type bug you might be able to find it by googling "bugs that live in water".

I don't think it is a mosquito larva; is there ever just one? And maybe it does not actually want to be in the water...

(I can't really see it either.)
