Curious to know what species this worker is

Sorry if these aren't the best pictures. I find these workers everywhere around my neighborhood. They have a red thorax with a black head and black abdomen, longer limbs, and longer antennae.
This worker measured at about 8mm.

Formica sp., but not possible to identify from this distance.
If you enjoy my expertise and identifications, please do not put wild populations at risk of disease by releasing pet colonies. We are responsible to give our pets the best care we can manage for the rest of their lives.
