Close-up of the disc florets of a Coneflower (Rudbeckia sp.).
The male florets are the brown anthers with yellow pollen grains; the female florets show 2 recurved red stigma.
I believe the red-topped spikes are bracts, one with each floret.
Distance between the tips of the vertical bracts on the left is 2 mm.
