Monarchs and Queens are in the same Danaus family of butterflys the Monarch (plexippus) and the Queen (gilippus) are very difficult to tell apart. I think this is a Queen which is a bit smaller than the Monarch and was photographed in May 2009 which is a bit late for the Monarchs in Texas. Taken at Kerrville Schreiner park.
