# Real image of virtual object

Are real images always inverted, even for a virtual object? I tried to make ray diagrams for such a situation in concave mirror, I am getting a real but erect and diminished image between pole and focus. Also, can I use the reversibility of path here? As when we take a real object between focus and pole we get a virtual, erect and enlarged image. I tried using this, by reversing the paths of light then also I am getting the same result. Where am I going wrong?
