May we legally use photos from Pinterest on a hub? Is it public domain material?

Some of the photographs on Pinterest, for instance of birds, show who the original photograher was. Can we legally use a photograph from Pinterest if we attribute the photo to the named person and also state it was from the Pinterest site? And what about if there is no original photographer named with the photo we would like to use?

    Good information, thanks! I only use Wikimedia Commons or Creative Commons or obtain the permission directly from a photographer. On Pinterest I neglected to study or copy any of the Agreement wording, so I wasn't at all sure. Thanks again.
