There are many viceroys,about half a dozen.  I even saw two chase each other, but pics were blurred.

Nice shots.

This time they are Monarchs, no black line across the wing.

And they're all males. Males have thinner wing veins and the black spot on the rear wing vein.

Gender too?! It's hard enough to tell genders of birds
