Formation of an image through a lens

Move the red arrow with your mouse and observe its green (or gray) image

The red arrow (our body) moves across the axis. While its image is green, it remains on the right of the lens. After a critical point the image is virtual (gray one) and it moves on the left of the lens.

Three rays of light are enough in order to draw the image.
