Why do we easily see dusts when there's a sunlight?

There are three things that we have in here. The lightwave that is coming from the sunlight, the dust particles, and open space . Normally, we see things because there is light and if these things are placed over contrasting colours. We can easily dust when they are placed over any colour. But cannot be seen by simply looking at them in an open space... unless there is sunlight that passes through them. Once a colored particle (in our case, dust), even though how microscopic it is, when lightwave that comes from the sun passes through it, it vibrates (as the word wave implies)and re-emits the same colour of the light that has passed though it, thus enables us to see it even in open space.
