Ok homeschoolers, what is it?

People, in our backyard today we discovered an insect that I think I can safely say is the weirdest thing I have ever seen!

It has 6 legs (thus why I called it an insect), looks like a very large ant with the lower half of his body dragging... like.. a bee or catepillar or something. It's a dark blue, very iridescent. I'm afraid I couldn't get a very good picture of his/her color with my phone.

Is there a website with a way of identifying insects??

What is it??

Anyone know an entomologist?

**edit : Ummmmm.... I'm starting to worry it's some kind of termite. It did excrete two green round things in the cup, one of which you can just see in the bottom of the picture above.
