I can't see them. You have it so no one but you can see it
Proverbs 6:6-8

Go to the ant, you sluggard;
consider its ways and be wise!
It has no commander,
no overseer or ruler,
yet it stores its provisions in summer
and gathers its food at harvest.

looks like a queen ant to me.
might be solenopsis sp. probably invicta (i'm not a expert so please correct me if i'm wrong)

also please a better picture, possibly with a lighter background for better contrast?
