Not a Monarch. This is the Viceroy, which is a mimic of the Monarch and can easily be confused with it, especially in flight.
Two things you will notice to identify it.
1. Note the thin black line going across the end of its wings. Monarchs don't have those lines.
2. Its head and body lack the white spots that a monarch has.
