I don´t think this is an ant. Not aggressive and very slow even when disturbed.
Thank you bayucca, you are right ! In the second picture we can see a Proboscis and small wings. Mistery solved.
This is most probably an nymph of Alydidae, so actually not an ant but a true bug:http://www.flickr.com/photos/brutamonte/...http://www.flickr.com/photos/brutamonte/...
Unfortunately I take only these 2 pics. Did you note some kind of holes in the abdomen ?
The antennae give it away as a hemipteran or true bug, but it's hard to be any more specific from this picture
