I accidentally deleted a photo off my iPhone, can I retrieve it?

Only if you have synced the phone before deleting the photo, or saved it on dropbox or something like that.

I do still have it as my wallpaper after I deleted it. Surely it must still be saved somewhere?

If you have it as wallpaper then it's in /private/var/mobile/Library/Wallpaper

Thank you, I assume this is on the computer...?

Is your phone Jailbroken by chance? If not, I'm not sure if you can get to that area as it is on the root area of the phone.
One quick fix would be to scroll to a blank screen on the phone and do a screen capture. Not the best, but it would put a copy of it in your photo roll.

No sorry I don't even know what that is, out of curiosity - what is it and should I have it? I did the screen shot and I guess it is better than nothing. Thank you.

if you still have the picture (lets say in your contact address picture on your iPhone) , why don't you just take a screenshot of it and voila! instant picture
