A reader sent this to us.
 
We think this is a Monarch, but would like a 2nd (actually 3rd) opinion!
 
 Thank you!

Hi there!
I think this is a Queen(Danaus Gilippus). The underside of both the forewing and hindwing are the same shade of orange/brown as the upperside of the wings. With the Monarch, the underside of the hindwing is much lighter in color than the upperside of its wings.
