Can .htaccess be configured to force a caption on hotlinked images?

I know how to use .htaccess to prevent bandwidth theft or even spoof hotlinked images - but can .htaccess be used to force a hotlinked image to simply display an image caption instead? I'd like to force a "Image courtesy of X" caption beneath hotlinked images, so at least the bandwidth loss would be of some use to the originating website. Is that possible, and if so, could anyone point me to example code? Thanks very much.
