    There is an old adage related to plants that says "Leaves of 3, let it be.". There are several plants with tri-foliate leaves that grow in our area. Poison Ivy being the most obvious, but there is also Rhus aromatica, or Fragrant Sumac. They can be very difficult to tell apart when the leaves are young. I'm fairly certain the first photo is the Sumac, but I wouldn't grab one of the leaves to check! A7 + Konica AR 57/1.4.
