Help with Queen

Guys! I watched a nuptual flight in my front yard today! Several ant colonies joined in, I have video of them getting ready. But I need help in ID with the species. I caught a few queens after I saw them mate. Please help with ID

Aphaenogaster sp.

Hello, I found this tapinoma queen. Pretty sure it is tapinoma. Also she has laid eggs randomly and sporadically. Is this normal behavior?

Camponotus major worker.
