figures are floating and the best place to print them is at the top of the page. You can try \begin{figure}[ht]. – Kurt Sep 2 '12 at 17:26

Figures (environment figure) and tables (environment table) are floating objects. That means LaTeX tries to place them optimal in your document. The best place to print them is at the top of the page.

Use the parameter [ht] to advice LaTeX to place the figure either here (h) or at the top (t) of the (next) page: \begin{figure}[ht].

With ! you can instruct LaTeX to make the position of the graphic opposite typographical conventions. That is, the graphic will be placed preferred here. Do not use ! if possible.

! doesn't (directly at least) affect the preference of one float area over another. If h is included it is used in preference to other float areas if placing a float there does not invalidate the constraints. ! removes most of the numeric constraints on the number of floats that may appear in each area and the proportions of the page that they may take up. – David Carlisle Sep 2 '12 at 18:12
