When the drive is detected, you will see a blue screen. That means it is loading the boot information from the startup drive. When the loading is done, it displays the desktop. If you have a newer Mac with a built-in display, you might not even see a blue or gray screen since Mac supports Retina display and extended color spaces, and the blue or gray screen can appear darker or even almost black.
