Harvest when the heads on the "bolbuous" trichomes turn foggy. Clear heads indicate immaturity while amber heads indicate the beginning of degredation. A hand held microscope from Radio Shack ($10) or a jewlers loupe will help see them clearly.

By the pictures, I say they're still way inmature. 2-3 weeks to harvest..at least would be my guesse.

so basically look at the white hairs and wait for them to turn red? lol
that isn't at all what I said. The pistils(white hairs) turning colors is not the most effecient form of judging maturity.

trichomes are the sparkly crystal looking glands that should be prominent/evident on your buds. "Bolbulous" triches are the ones that look similar to mushrooms. They mature in three stages, clear=immature, cloudy/turning white=mature, amber=beginning to degrade.
Here's a pretty good link..
