This little patch of lichens was walking across the tree trunk. It is the debris-carrying larva of the green lacewing, a voracious predator of aphids and such. The things it attaches to its back are either a protection against predatory lady bug larvae, or a disguise that allows them to pass through guardian ants into aphid colonies.
