Poison Ivy 9
In this close-up, you can see two complete sets of leaves, two more leaves, the ground-running vine they're branching from, and then more brown twigs sticking up to the left there that used to hold leaves. In this photo you can clearly make out some of the distinguishing features of poison ivy leaves - the two halves of the middle leaf are usually evenly symmetrical, while the two side leaves mirror each other, having the bottom half of each leaf wider than the top half. The top half often has fewer teeth or lobes than the bottom half.
