We found this crawling on our sidewalk in northern Rhode Island. There appeared to be the shells of others around. It was found in the middle of May on a mild spring day. What is it?

Dear Any,
This impressive creature is a Hellgrammite, the larva of a Dobsonfly, and they are generally found near a source of water.
