Funny, I wonder how common that is - I do the same thing. I tilt to the right slightly - my guess is that it's because of the pressure on the shutter button. But even knowing that, I forget to apply the discipline of a "gentle squeeze of the trigger".
depends upon the camera, too, I suppose...

my X-H1 has a feather-touch button that I have to recalibrate my brain every time I pick it up ...

Funny, many of my non-tripod images show about a 1.7 degree tilt to the left. This may be political, or else the result of right shoulder damage sustained in a bicycle crash many years ago.

I constantly watch the level, but that doesn't always help. Years ago, we had a guy who's go to criticism of any image was the horizon wasn't level. The answer is there is no requirement for a horizon to be level to be a good photograph. The criteria is that the image has to look good, and be engaging. Sometimes a horizon that's out of level contributes to that.

I've been keeping my eye open for this image, since you posted your leaves....
Another "light" box style image.
