Hello all! I caught my first queen ant a few weeks ago, and it recently started laying eggs. In all the excitement, I forgot to identify my queen! :D Do any of you know what species, or at least genus, she is?

That's just the file name. A link would have to be the address of the file, which is easy to provide if you upload to an image hosting site like flickr or imgur.

Kinda looks like Solenopsis invicta, but hard to tell from the one picture. Lighting helps to retain some of that detail.
