And it was just that it was out of water so the legs were spread out but thanks for the info

Interesting spotting. I suspect you have, not a shrimp, but a snow scorpionfly (Boreus brumalis). They are usually found on the surface of the snow on warm winter days, especially towards spring. Take a look at this page and see if you'd agree with me: http://bugguide.net/node/view/377528. If so, I think you may have the first spotting of this insect on Project Noah!
