Note that only the total electron density is shown for each orbital, i.e., the phases for each orbital are not shown.
d_{xy}
xaxis = yellow Note that the electron density (1) lies in the plane defined by the x and y axes, and (2) lies between the x and y axes.


d_{xz}
xaxis = yellow Note that the electron density (1) lies in the plane defined by the x and z axes, and (2) lies between the x and z axes.
 
d_{yz}
xaxis = yellow Note that the electron density (1) lies in the plane defined by the y and z axes, and (2) lies between the y and z axes.
 
d_{x}2_{y}2
xaxis = yellow Note that the electron density (1) lies in the plane defined by the x and y axes, and (2) lies directly along the x and y axes.
 
d_{z}2
xaxis = yellow Note that the electron density lies directly along the z axis.
