Hard to tell without a closer photo, but it looks pretty big, so I'm thinking Black Rat Snake.

I would guess that this is a Western rat snake

Either a Black Rat Snake or a Black Racer , I imagine. Check the range for those two species. I'm in North Central Florida and we don't have the rat snakes this far south, but we have the racers. You folks are a bit north of us, so I don't know which it is.
