Yet another newbie seeking advice. Pix are of one of four Gorilla Glue autos that are on day 74. The panoramic shot is a family portrait for Frank (left front), Joe (left back), Hamilton (right front), and Reynolds (right back). The closeups are from Joe who's hunkered down in the back, behind Frank.

To my untrained eye, Joe looks to be either ready to harvest or "real soon now". I haven't taken pix/examined the nugs below canopy level but from looking at them over the past few days, I think they looked to be at the same stage of development.

I'd really appreciate your feedback.

Thanks in advance.

Are these any better?

The buds further down the stem have some white stigmas and only a few leaves have yellowed. This is an RDWC grow so no flushing.

See how much fuller the buds are in girth.

Got it.

To the naked eye, a fair number of the trichs appear cloudy but the backlit pix of the leaf shows that there’s a lot of clear trichs left. That plant has only dropped a couple of leaves and none had the light, yellowish coloration.

"See how much fuller the buds are in girth."
I see that. Huge difference.

Thank you for the feedback.

I can recommend what @Mañ'O'Green said. He knows his sh!t.
It's just the last few weeks the buds expand and small buds turn out big crystal coated frost giants.
And an old saying in the cannabis scene... "When you think it's ready wait one more week" comes to mind :toke:

It’s been a week and a half since the last pix.

For the life of me, I can’t get a good closeup of that plant. I’ve got a Nikon 7100 with the 105 2.8 Macro lens. It’s a great lens but it only gets to 1:1. These pix were shot with an iPhoneXS Max with a Xenvo macro lens and a Bluetooth shutter release. I bought a little USB microscope but I’m not too keen on removing a bud. :-(

This one’s from the 7100. Had to crop it to get under the file size limit.
