I was taking various pictures of the pond in the back yard and discovered I had caught our resident frog in one of his rare appearances.

Contrast range is set a bit too high as you have some blocking of shadows and hot spots in the highlights of the left. Meets the challenge well.

Serendipity is a difficult concept to visualize. For me it means being at the right place, at the right time, and being lucky enough to capture something unique. Some of these entries are set up shots trying to illustrate that concept, and some record a serendipitous moment experienced by the photographer themselves. This is an example of the latter. The subject matter is interesting, however from a formal standpoint, it's not well served by this composition. You might have had more luck with a tighter crop, or perhaps a view from above.

Is this serendipity or perhaps a less-fortunate surprise? I think geckos are good luck, gators less so...

there's way too much going on here, and camoflauge is not serendipity

The frog kinda blends in too much. The foreground is overexposed.
