it doesn't seem at all obvious to me; you asked for a floating figure
not for a "picture".
unless you need a caption, there's absolutely no sense in using a
figure environment. try
or the like.
-- never use the center environment in figures, as you have done -- it
introduces unwanted extra vertical space. say \centering instead.
(note this doesn't work with "legacy" graphics packages, but graphics/
graphicx -- which you're using -- are fine.)
-- you _can_ get captions outside of figures, even. see the ccaption
package, or the (trivially simple) capt-of package.
