What Kind of Snake is This?

We found this snake in our back yard yesterday. Our neighbor thinks it is a moccasin. It is red and black striped with a whitish belly. The head does have black lines from the eyes to lips and the head is a diamond shape. We live in Tampa Florida and there is a conservation area out back.

Based on what I read here, I would think that this is, indeed, a venomous watersnake.
