Question Asked: Is this poison ivy,oak???

Answer: Hi Vickie - You don't give details of where you are located but I think it's pretty safe to say that this is poison ivy. I'd love to have a closer shot with more resolution including some of the stem just to give you a more positive id. There are many of the characterisitics we see in the picture though that help in the id as poison ivy. FYI - poison oak has a more rounded, oak-y looking leaflet.
