Toronto,Canada Ant Identification Help. Sept.11

Hello friends,

I've been watching AntsCanada for a while and today while going for a walk after a giant rainstorm I noticed there was a more than usual amount of little big insects running around the concrete.(I live near the suburbs with plenty of woods and trails)

Anyway, I figured two are the same species as the other.

I figured they are Lasius and I am not sure what the black one is.

Any ideas?

Upon research, they seem like a Lasius Neoniger and a Crematogaster queen!

The Black one is Crematogaster.
