Would my photos be considered hand held? I have both lenses, old and new version and almost always use the lens handheld...i think. Do I really use it hand held as I don't carry a tripod but about 90 percent of the time I find something to prop the camera with. If I have to I will lay right down in the dirt and have my elbows on the ground  or use a fence or telephone pole maybe a tree anyway you all get the picture. Granted not as good as a tripod  but it gives me a good success rate. Would my photos be considered hand held?

I don't know how far away this bird was but it was a rare bird for my area so the photo was taken for id purposes not to frame and display. The forum has been changed around so i don't know it the photo or link will even show up. But I love the lens because I can grab a photo long distance.
