The figure environment is used to create floating figures -- LaTeX feels free to move them around to the best-looking place. As an optional argument to the figure environment, you can tell LaTeX where to put the figure. (By default, it goes to the top of a page.)

To have it show up where you've put it in your code, invoke it like this:


The h stands for "here." You could also specify the bottom of the page by saying [b]. You can list more than one preference -- [hb] means "put it here, but if there isn't room, put it at the bottom of a page."

It should be noted that even with h, LaTeX can float the figure elsewhere. There are packages on CTAN that actually do give the option to "unfloat" a float, e.g. the package here. I do not know what the currently best option is, though. – Svante Sep 2 '12 at 20:28
If you want it to not float, just place the image (either on its own, or in something like a minipage and use caption's \captionof{figure}{<caption>} to place the caption) and not in a floating environment. The float package provides a H float placement specifier. – Werner Sep 3 '12 at 0:42
