I was on the cell phone with a friend when I saw it and snapped a couple of shots -- which were, unfortunately, too blurred to see the number. When I reached for a nearby net, off he took up into the hackberries. I've got about 150 - 200 monarchs flying in the yard right now. They're not heading south against the strong south winds and I'm hoping this guy will pop down for more nectar before a cool front blows in tomorrow with lots of rain. I'd like to verify the number and report it to Monarch Watch, but we'll see if that happens.
