Slight delay in image loading

My images are having a slight, but annoyingly noticeable delay in loading. I’ve followed all of best practices from the next.js docs for image optimization and I’ve compressed the images. It seems like the only thing left would be DNS issues. I’ve seen some related posts so I followed along with this a couple days ago: How to Set Up Netlify DNS - Custom Domains, CNAME, & Records and expected it to be the fix, but nothing has changed. I’ve had this with a previous site on Netlify as well, different framework but exact same delay in the images. This leads me to believe I’m doing something wrong I’m just not sure what.
