See if this helps. Your photo is not real clear. I think it is non-venomous:

Do you live near a body of water? Could it be a Northern Water Snake? (last photo at bottom right)

A site I like for identifying critters is Herps of NC. In addition to snake information they have sound clips for frogs so you can identify them by their chirps & croaks.
