I gathered this water sample under a group of trees that lined Mill Pond at HCC. The water was very green and I was really happy to get such a protozoa-packed sample.
These guys moved so fast so the picture is cruddy. So I'm going to avoid a possible future argument and just leave it at genus.

The Euglenozoa are a large group of flagellate protozoa. They include a variety of common free-living species, as well as a few important parasites, some of which infect humans. There are two main subgroups, the euglenids and kinetoplastids. Euglenozoa are unicellular, mostly around 15-40 µm in size, although some euglenids get up to 500 µm long.
