If you're asking what I think you're asking, then the answer is that the image should be available at all times, not just when it's focused. According to the spec language below, the user agents must ignore the presentation role when it's focusable, not just when it's focused.

If an element with a role of presentation is focusable, user agents MUST ignore the normal effect of the role and expose the element with implicit native semantics, in order to ensure that the element is both understandable and operable.
