Koster Uses More Than Luck To Find 4 Leaf Clovers

Most clovers you see have only three leaves. The estimated statistical odds of finding a fourleaf clover is 10,000 to 1. More difficult to find is a five leaf clover at 100,000 to 1. David Koster of Portraits In The Sand and Home & Boat Watchdog from Rehoboth Beach, DE uses his acute visual skills to often locate the leaves of four. He can sometimes even spot 5 or more leaf clovers too.

Websites about finding four‐leaf clovers state that you don’t want to examine individual clovers. You want to continually scan your eyes over the entire area.
