Spiderwort (Tradescantia) is a common purple or pink garden flower with contrasting yellow stamens. For this image, I used high magnification to show just the feathery filaments floating in a big raindrop on the petal surface:


I’ve read that each filament bead is a single cell. This was at 4x or 5x magnification, composited (stacked) for more detail.
