Butterfly sighting

Location: Kenosha and Pleasant Prairie
Kenosha County

Overcast skies a good part of the day, but did see quite a few dragonflies and a few butterflies. I saw my first Red Saddlebags dragonfly and a large robber fly, Laphria thoracica. We also saw what I believe is an odd colored Monarch. The color on the attached photo is very accurate.
