This is the second queen to show up in my bathroom! Credit goes to my awesome wife for spotting her. Did my best with pictures with what I have.

She is about 15mm long. Mostly black, with a touch of dark brown. It's a cooler day today in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Pretty sure she is a Camponotus species. Wanted to run her by the forum here to see what you all think.

Definitely Camponotus. Looks like Pennsylvanicus but I'm not certain.
