Dust on viewfinder/pentaprism??

Hello folks. I can see dust specs in my viewfinder, but for some reason, they don't show up in my pictures. I've tried taking long exposed shots of white backgrounds at very narrow apertures, and no dust or particles are showing up on my pictures.

However, I still see tiny, short, black hair-like particles in my viewfinder. I've tried using the blower on my sensor and cleaning my mirror with a microfiber cloth and the blower, but the speckles are still there.

Has anyone encountered a similar phenomenon?

Thanks for any advice or input.
