How do I use wget to download only images from a single web page?

I want to download all the background images that
a web page has readily available for its guests. I was hoping someone could show me how to download only images from that web page.
preferable only .gif .ico .jpeg .jpg .png
I don't know if there are anymore types of images.

wget -r -l1 --no-parent -A.gif

repalce -A.gif with other type of file image extension.
Oth, if the http server does not allow direct download (you get a 403), you probably wants to mask/change wget user-agent so it looks like an IE or FF user-agent
