Ready to pollinate 2

The female flower on the left is at peak receptivity and ready to pollinate. As long as the bagging timing was correct, this takes place about 10-14 days after bagging. The female flower on the right is still a bit too young for pollination. To achieve maximum seed set, one would want to return to the tree in 2-4 days and re-pollinate; but that's not always possible.
