Dear Bugman,
I photographed these two insects and I need an identification. The first one is of a butterfly that I took in November. At first I thought it was a monarch but the top wing looked different to me. The second photo is of a insect on Mt. Lemmon, Tucson, and it was taken in July of last year. Thank you so much

Hi Harrison,
You were observant to notice the difference between a Monarch and your butterfly, the closely related Queen.  You can read more about the Queen,
Danaus gilippus, on BugGuide.
