A friend just asked me... I am not sure.    It looks familiar... but different than what may grow in my region.

Lookin at the leaf, I think Edward Norton is right - Sorrelvine or possum grape.  I haven't seen many of those.

Thanks, y'all!

Thank you, Edward

The funny thing picture of that looks like a vine we got from the Monarch association.  I have been trying to identify it for 3 or 4 years now. Mine is what I would describe as a waxy leaf though it has never bloom or gotten fruit nor have I seen any larva on it.  Maybe I need to find a trellis so I can let it grow to 15 foot and maybe it will flower and fruit:
