Yaupon Holly

This is a cluster of Yaupon Holly berries from a tree in the park at the entrance to the neighborhood.

Or maybe it's Possumhaw.
I'll know later this winter.  If all the leaves go away, it's Possumhaw.  If they stay, it's Yaupon.

Whatever the case, they're pretty.  And my new camera worked well.

CORRECTION - TWO WEEKS LATER  - all the leaves are gone.  It must be Possumhaw.

Second Correction - these are "drupes", not berries.  Thank you, Steve Schwartzman, for this information in your blog "Portraits of Wildflowers".  Your pictures are truly inspirational.
