Thanks to Eric Noora for the ID... I think these ants are interesting looking, but tend to be cautious with them because they bite.
High desert, northern New Mexico.
Glad to help textless. This is actually the soldier ant or major worker ant :-)
You're right Textless. Its a bigheaded ant. Have a similar spotting which I am about to post as well. Yours is much clearer though :-)
