Size? And try taking a picture without using the flash, the queen is pretty hard to see this way... Also, this post should be made in the Ant species identification center... You'll have a higher chance of people helping you there.
First year of antkeeping, already enjoying it!

Currently founding:

Lasius niger
Lasius umbratus
Lasius flavus


Still hoping to find a Formica queen.
