In firefox, you can highlight a specific region of the page and select the "View Selection Source" from the context menu.  However, if it's embedded deep with css it may require a good bit more searching.  Sometimes you have to search a slightly larger section of area of the screen with this feature to find the portion of code containing your image and work backwards.

It might be in the code. Just view the source code through Internet Explorer and look for this code.

If site is using complex html use IE developer tools.

As another thought, you could use something like wget to pull the entire page (and all associated objects) to a local folder and browse the folder.  Sometimes a lot easier.

There is also an add-on for Chrome called 'Web Developer' that will display the image paths on the page.

the easiest one was using the source and sifting through the images.

but thanks for everyone's input!
