Nice to be popular - 4 guys and a gal low res

Last year in our pond - I felt rather sorry for this female! How common is it for 4 males to hang on? I've never seen it before.
Higher res photo available too.

Multiple Males attempting to mate.

This is not at all uncommon.

Male toads -

are even less kind to their ladies, frequently climbing on and holding tight while still some distance from the pond. The poor lass then has to carry him there!
