Hey guys, just caught some new queens today and im not sure about the first two. Here are their pictures and size.

Caught two of these, they are tiny at about 3-4 mm

Honestly not sure if she is a queen or not, but that golden stripe on the bag is gorgeous so i picked her up anyway. 7-8mm.

Now i've been hunting for a Rhytidoponera Green head ant for ages, got a lot of them in my yard so i'm always on the lookout, but the few i thought were queens didn't turn out to be after looking closer. This is probably the most queen looking one i've found. so i thought i'd put it here for a better ant keeper to have a look. easily 10-12 mm. Not to happy about these pics, i can take better ones if need be.
