This isn't a cottonmouth. It's one of the watersnakes, Nerodia sp.

I'm definitely not a herpetologist, but looking through my old Peterson, looks like a Banded Watersnake, N. fasciata.

This is a Banded Watersnake (Nerodia fasciata). Providing a location is one of the most important things to include when seeking an ID.

Yes, my location is also there, but I post photos from all over. One can never assume that the animal you posted is from the location under your avatar.

Miami would definitely be a Florida (Banded) Watersnake (Nerodia fasciata pictiventris).
