ANTS: What is going on?

Are all of these ants? Two different species of ant? Or is there a species that is displaying a form of Myrmecomorphy? Ant mimicry. There was a tremendous wrestling match going on.

This evening was about ants. Possibly because the rain finally stopped for the moment, there are ants everywhere. At first I thought these winged individuals might be new queens going for a nuptial flight, otherwise why are they all standing on an ant hill? And some did fly off, but others were dragged back into the nest. Did the ants discover a nest of termites?
I'm looking into it...
