To identify the original source of an online image in Google Images click on "source" link beside the image. This takes you to the place where the image was embedded. For example, here is a MLA citation for a picture of a butterfly found in Google Images:
"Viceroy Butterfly." Wikipedia. Wikipedia Foundation, 22 August 2005. Web. 20 March 2014.
According to the MLA handbook, if an image exists in another medium (work of art) prior to the Internet, the citation should reference the history.
Michelangelo. Pieta. 1498-1499. Marble. St. Peter's Basilica, Vatican City. Top 7 Places to
Pray at St. Peter's. SaintPeter'sBasillica.org. 1987. Web. 20 March. 2014.

You do not need to cite images stored in Creative Commons or those labeled as "copyright free."
