Ants - Pogonomyrmex

Not sure if these pics should be submitted separately as two individuals are shown, but I figured they were the same species. These two were working valiantly to drag their prize back to the nest.

Moved from Harvester Ants.

Probably P. occidentalis, but also could be the closely related P. salinus

Pogonomyrmex sp.?
Looks like something in Pogonomyrmex to me. Antweb lists 9 species for Utah, but I don't think I'd want to guess which of 3 of those without side views or a really detailed face shot.

Moved from ID Request.

It's okay to link these. According to the Help section, "Only images of the same specimen or group of specimens should be linked together." This would be a two-specimen "group." :)

Thanks Ken,
I missed that about the group!
