They look like D. brevifolia to me.
Just my 2¢worth.

I can see that. It has dew all over it and the d. Capillaris has a little bit of leaf toward the center without dew

Are they the only Carnivorous Plants that grow in your yard?

I also have d. Capillaris that are native that grow in the back yard.
And I planted some fly traps in the ground behind the house, just to see if they would survive. And they all did well.
I dug out the weeds, tossed in some live moss, and planted 2 areas with 5 fly traps. I had to move 2 because it was too shady. The fly traps that are in the sunshine and in the ground are doing great. They lived out there all Winter.

CPKid
I have a few experimental bogs. I was trying to see if/what I can leave outside over winter.
And it seems everything survived. I left Sundews, Sarracenia, fly traps and utricularia outside over winter in zone 8.
The utricularia has not come back yet but will.
