It appears underneath the image when you've gone through to "all
sizes". It's there for all images with CC-* permissions, and - I think
- authors can set it to be visible even for all-rights-reserved images
in their own preferences.

http://www.flickr.com/photos/shimgray/2710860588/ is the last image I
uploaded (don't worry, it wasn't all mine...) and "all sizes" will
give you: http://www.flickr.com/photos/shimgray/2710860588/sizes/m/ a
download link, then the image, then underneath that the raw image URL
and a set of preformed HTML.
