Hello, i am new to this family and was hoping if anyone can help me in idetifying this species and if it is indeed a queen.

i caught this ant at the cabin but i wasnt sure if its a queen or a major. i went to search the immediate area and found a colony of similar colored ants about 100 meters away. i didnt find anything that was bigger than this after observing it for a couple hours.

this was at steep rock manitoba canada at around noon.

i've been watching alot of AntsCanada and antsaustralia but sadly there is no GAN farmers at my province so i have no choice but to catch my own queen. hopefully someone can help me get started. thank you!

odd how that could be as i did not find any camponotus ants anywhere. maybe some lasius but the ones i saw were super small.
