I check my reputation received today. It says I have received 205 points. I thought the cap was at 200 per day. Will it go back down to the cap sometime later or is this intended?

Reputation is capped at 200 points from votes.

If you have an answer accepted, you accept an answer or you are awarded a bounty these points are immune from the cap and can take your daily reputation over 200.
