Convex mirror curvature change. Animation showing parallel beams of light (white and pink) striking a convex parabolic mirror whose curvature varies over time. As the curvature varies, the direction of the reflected beams changes. The light striking the mirror radiates outwards creating a virtual focus behind the mirror. The increased curvature causes objects to appear distorted and smaller in a convex mirror than they really are.
