The Nikon 200-500mm f/5.6E VR is a great lens, and handheld can produce some remarkable shots. However, in the case of these Trumpeters the photo was handheld in lieu of grabbing the tripod. The image is a bit OOF, but thought I'd post it anyway. I should have taken the time to set up the tripod because these birds were not frightened and posed for the shot. Next time, Trumpeters beware!
