Well, the simplest explanation is that more source data had changed
than usual or someone renamed a large directory (which looks like a
deletion + creation to rsync).  There could be something else going
on, but I have no idea what it might be from the information you gave.

If the two machines have a really fast network connection, you could
try --whole-file; that will use more network bandwidth in exchange for
reducing CPU time and disk I/O.
