Here's American Bittersweet, Celastrus Scandens, which is much more common than the alien Oriental Bittersweet.
It's often prized for the ornamental value of the seeds in the winter. It is pretty! However, it's also quite a pesky vine. It can overrun everything in sight, killing trees and covering buildings.
I was happy to find a nice patch of it today to add to my photo pages at Shark Shots
