How large were your pictures?
Full size images average 125KB, thumbnails 7-10KB
Doesn't it have to get the full-sized images from which to create the thumbnails?
Well, I checked and Googlebot has created the its own thumbnails from the my thumbnails, not from the full size images.
I do however keep the full size images on separate sites (domains), because of space/traffic issues (I'm using three packages 500MB/50GB for cost reasons). The main site only has all thumbnails and html pages. This has been so for almost two years.
By the way, while checking again the logs of the past 12 months of all sites, I noticed that "full size grabs" actually already took place last October and this February.
