Can you post photos. Don't have access to google drive. You can use imgur or photo bucket. Just post the link or embed the photo using the tutorial on the main forum page.

Yeah, I'm not sure on this one. Pictures are a bit blurry and I'm not as familiar with ants in Spain so nothing is standing out to me. Maybe someone else will be of more help on this one.

Looks to be a Lasius sp.
