Not the same species
The small ant in this image is a Dorymyrmex, the large ant is a small Pogonomyrmex minor.

 
Thank you very much!
It appears the only Pogonomyrmex in Florida is Pogonomyrmex badius... so, does "minor" refers to a cast then? Like a small worker? I can separate the two or just file it as Pogonomyrmex badius with you note on the smaller species identity.
