Would love help with an ID on these two. I do live in southern Ohio and recently found them at a local park. Any help would be amazing as this is my first go at ant keeping.

Hi everyone! Like a lot of us, I'm pretty new to all this and caught a queen on June 19th in Northern Virginia (she fell into my dinner while I was on the back porch haha). She's laid a decent sized batch of eggs in her test tube setup, but I'm realizing I don't know what to expect from her once they start developing. If anyone has any good resources to ID her or recognizes what she is from my pictures, I'd really appreciate any help!

I recently caught this ant due to its size. Seemed abnormally big so I wanted to know if it were a queen. I'm struggling to figure this out, however, as I can't even figure out what kind of ant she is. Does anyone know? Any guesses on if she's a queen?

No she is not a queen.
My current colonies:
The miniature military(formica neogagates)
the power of war(camponotus novaeborecensis)
the black hearts(crematogaster cerasi
the blazing nation(Myrmica alaskensis)
