Wing scales of butterflies

Once I read on Facebook that the wings of butterflies were made of scales and that the “dust” you see when you touch a butterflie are actually the scales, that amazed me because I couldn’t imagine how was that possible. A few weeks ago I saw a little black and white wing on the floor and I took it so I could observe it through my foldscope; when I did it I felt very happy because I could finally see with my own eyes that fact.
