    i'm not at a mac right now, but my bet is it's in one of the Library folders (probably /System/Library)...in Library, you'll find a folder named ScreenSavers and when you find the forest one, right/control-click on the file, Show Package Contents, and poke around in there...you'll probably find the images

    system>library>screen savers

    *right-click* on one of the icons in that folder and "show package contents"

    then... contents>resources

    the jpegs will be in the resources folder

    i'm not certain, but i don't think spotlight indexes bundle contents (since applications, screensavers, etc are really just glorified folders--not often that you need to see the guts)
