Common Green Bottle Fly

Common Green Bottle Fly
Chatham, Chatham-Kent, Ontario, Canada
July 14, 2019
Not sure about the Common Green Bottle Fly ID, but what intrigued me after getting this image on the computer screen was the little critter just above it, which appears to be a larva of some kind. Not sure if it is connected to the fly or just happened to be in the same vicinity. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Moved from Leaf Beetles.

Moved to Chrysomelidae for expert identification.
Moved from ID Request.

Leaf beetle
I think it's a leaf beetle larva.
