Are these thrichomes ripe for harvest?

Hey all!

I’m in week 9 of flower and wanted to see if I could get your opinions on whether these girls may be ready to harvest.
These pics are from 2 different plants. The first one is definitely showing amber.(sorry for the blurry pic for this one!) The second one, cloudy and clear?

Let me know what you all think!

looks like the second pic is 1/2 and 1/2 clear/cloudy. can’t really tell about the first pic.


@Nightman @Newbiedude This also helps.

Time of harvest affects the taste, smell and weight of your buds

0-49% of the pistils are brown – Not ready yet

50-70% of the pistils are brown – Ready for harvest,
but it’s still a bit young. Light taste and mellow high.
Maximum weight not yet achieved

70-90% of the pistils are brown – Ready for harvest.
Taste and effect are at their peak. You’ve reached maximum weight

90-100% of the pistils brown – Almost too late for harvest.
Taste is heavy and the effect is narcotic.
Harvest right away and don’t wait any longer

But the trichs are what you want to pay close attention too. How many weeks into flower?

From the closeups it looks like there are still a lot of white / new pistils. My plants are usually closer to 11 weeks from flip still having cloudy, amber and some clear.
