Caught in Central Saskatchewan May 22, 2019

These ants were found in central Saskatchewan. Can you please have a look and tell me what they are. My 7 year old is hoping one of them will be the start of her first colony and we want to research more about this species.

They are about 1.5 cm long. Caught in the early evening between 5-7 PM.

If these pictures are not clear or need to be from a different angle, please let me know and I will try to take some better ones.

Thanks for your help!! 😊

Congratulations on the catch! They both seem to be some type of Camponotus. Possibly Camponotus pennsylvanicus.
Founding:

Crematogaster (2X)

Lasius Neoniger (2X)
