What’s this?

Found in snow and rainwater samples from my balcony. I sometimes also see this in other water samples near leaf litter or moss. Photographed at 100x with phone camera zoom of about 3 to 5x.

This was taken from a throat swab during a throat infection. I used methylene blue, and it was observed at 100x and 400x, if I recall correctly.   Know what this is? Leave a comment below!
