I have HTC Wildfire.

I used default gallery app, that ships with the phone to view photos.

What is the default sort order of the gallery app?

Sometimes, photos are in a particular order, after a month of so, they are in different order.

I don't know what is happening.

    m-jm Yes, I know that there are no answers there yet. I was just pointing that question out as one to keep an eye on, as they're very similar questions and a future answer on there might help you out.

I've had experience before on the Nexus One, this sort order is the last modified.

If you access your SD card from your PC this can sometimes scan your images folder and 'touch' the images with the last modified date then being updated.

That's how I've had random sort orders in the past!
