Backyard Nuptial Flight Queens

Hi all!

Been a while, but I finally have the chance to raise new colonies after my last ones busted. Attached here is the image of the ants I found having their nuptial flight right in my backyard! I wanted to be sure of what species they were before I went too far along and lost them again due to whatever the reasons may be. I ended up catching a few of the males as they flew as well and put them with the females just to be sure that they were fertile. I have two who dropped their wings already and I am super excited for the future. Any help ID'ing these ladies would be appreciated!
