That Second website was fantastic thanks. Based on what I saw it was a southern black racer.

Thank you for the info. I wish I had something more than my stupid iPhone to get the pictures. I really want to get closer and take some clearer photographs.

This is a tough one to ID from these photos, although the 4th one is probably the best. This snake could be a Crayfish Snake in the genus Regina, or a Water Snake in the genus Nerodia. Here are a couple of links to take a look at: http://srelherp.uga.edu/snakes/regrig.ht... & http://www.flmnh.ufl.edu/herpetology/fl-....
