Hi Carol, if someone ask me how would you arrange this perticular set of images then I shall arrange V4,3,2, and then V1, he was trying to climb the hanging bud and in the V1 he has ultimately climbed the top of the everest.. ha ha.
It must have been really fun capturing this kind of images, a playful bug.. Excellent capture and my vote for V1 and V2 and V4.. Marvelous.
