Are these baby termites or what?

Very small bugs found in North Alabama on wooden outdoor furniture. Are these baby termites? Seem to be moving in lines like ants.

I'm not convinced it's a termite as the worker termites, which are white/cream colored workers, do not expose themselves unless someone exposed them by breaking open wood or digging up soil. The other factor is the long back pair of legs. Maybe it's an illusion or due to the photo, but if in reality that pair of legs is that much longer than the others, then it's not a termite.
