Why does the image become massive when the browser is reduced in width?

When the browser is reduced to a certain width, the .feat-image becomes much larger than it is normally. I was just wondering what is causing that.

The width declaration of the .feat-img element is inside a min-width media query. This means that it is only being applied if the viewport size is at least 789px wide. When you resize to a viewport size smaller than this, the image takes on its default properties. Normally, images will be as wide as their inherent image width by default, but as this is an SVG, it doesn't really have a size so in this case it grows to 100% of the parent container's content area.
