While hiking in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park I spotted a plant which was bearing these colorful berries. They were growing along the bank of the Ohio Erie Canal and looked somewhat like a wild grape.

I had seen these berries on numerous ocassions, but didn't know what they were. I tried to look up the plant in my guide books, but didn't have any luck identifying them.

I finally sent a photo to a local park naturalist and found out that it is an invasive species called (Porcelian Berry) which grows naturally in Asia.
