Found two queens on consecutive days. First queen was given prior ID of Lasius Alienus; I've provided a better pic with an actual camera.

Lasius Alienus 7-8mm (?) Still has her wings -

Second queen with no wings 9-10mm -

Thanks in advance

The second queen is Tetramorium immigrans, but I would ask for brighter pictures of the first.
