The transition-delay property defines when the transition will start. It allows a transition to begin execution some period of time from when it is applied. A 'transition-delay' value of '0s' means the transition will execute as soon as the property is changed. Otherwise, the value specifies an offset from the moment the property is changed, and the transition will delay execution by that offset.
