The Stigma is part of the reproductive organ of the female flower.  It is the tip of the carpel and its job is to trap and catch the pollen for fertilisation.

The stigma is one part of the carpel, which is the female reproductive part of a flower. The stigma is generally the end portion of the flower which does not have an epidermis and is fitted in order to receive pollen (male gametes) which is its primary function. It is usually somewhat glutinous or viscid.

It is the sticky bulb which is commonly seen in the centre portion of flowers where the pollen lands and thus the fertilisation process begin. The other parts of the carpel are the style and the ovary.

The style is the stalk that connects the stigma with the ovary and it contains the transmitting tract that facilitates the male gamete's movement to the ovule. The ovary (which is also known as a megasporophyll) contains the female reproductive cell, called the ovule.

The stigma is sticky so when a bee flies past it will stick to the stigma
