I was wondering

When one looks at a mirror, the image or reflection one sees is the "flipped" image of one's self. The flipping happens via the vertical axis. But why don't we see the image flipped via the horizontal axis? I mean why don't we see ourselves upside down? I know this flipping at the horizontal axis happens when one looks through a lens. But why not in a mirror? Anyone?
