Wrong. "mobi format" is not doing this. Your chosen converter, KindleGen (via Previewer), is doing it.

If you want to use KindleGen for the conversion you should spec each image with the desired pixel size for width and height explicitly, inside of the <img> tag itself.

The problem is that in mobi the image and the caption are not together...
There is no good way to prevent this. No matter what you do, a text caption may render on the next screen when the image is too near the bottom of a screen. You can use a good image editor and create images with "text" for the caption in the image itself. This fixes the current issue, but prevents the reader from scaling the "text" larger or smaller when the user alters their device's base font size. My edition of "The Atlantic River" uses this technique. Most captions are fine in the regular text flow, but some readers may need to "click" on the images to display them full screen (Kindle version only) to make the caption text more readable.
