Increasing site: operator numbers with each page

I mentioned a blip of this happening a few months back but today when I paged through a site:example.com search on Google images the first page was 1 - 21 of about 631 the second page was "about 1,270" and so on, getting closer and closer to the actual number of images on our site.

Anyone seen this behavior?

That's a new one on me. The estimated numbers have always been static, page after page the same, until I hit the last page with the "exact" number.

I'll keep an eye out for this behavior. I wonder if there will be anything we can learn from it, or if it will just be one of those strange little things Google does.

I have had the opposite problem for months -- SERP set to 100 per page -- always shown 10 pagination pages, so you assume you will see 1000 URLs. Almost never the case. Click the 10 link and you land on a page showing (say) results 301 to 379.

It is very odd. First page says "of 648". When you get to the last page, it's "Results 643 - 648 of about 21,400".
