The first four photo's note the variations in the leaves of the plants. All the plants are poison ivy. The top and bottom left are in the same patch/area as are the bottom & top images on the right. These leaves are on the same plant and they look very different!
It is this irregularity of the leaves and the inconsistency of leaves on the same vine/plant that makes poison ivy plant easy to spot. Generally, 3 leave plants have symmetrical leaves, but the most common exception to this is the seedling Box Elder tree.

Poison ivy in the periwinkle.
Poison Ivy climbing up a large tree.
There are three vines in this image.
Can you tell which is the poison ivy? It's the one on the left, the middle one is Virginia creeper and the right one is a young grape.
This poison ivy vine has fine hairs clinging to the tree while the hairs of the virginia creeper are more coarse and sometimes tend to be parted down the middle. The grape is normally shaggy but the young ones can be fairly smooth like this one.
Poison ivy uses aerial roots to anchor itself to a tree or other object, but sometimes you will find a poison ivy vine hanging, unattached to a tree or other object. This is usually seen with wild grapes, but not always.
Typical hairy vine.
This tree had to be removed and destroyed then replaced with a new one.
