Code Challenge - Images nested in Unordered Lists

Please tell me which part of my code is wrong. I have tried every different way I could think of and cannot seem to get it to work.

index.html
<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
  <head>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
  </head>
  <body>
    <header>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>
        <h2>Designer</h2>
      </a>
      <nav>
        <ul>
          <li><a href="index.html">Portfolio</a></li>
          <li><a href="about.html">About</a></li>

Hey Kyle,

You seem to have two nav elements with your images nested in the second.

Try this:

<section>
    <ul>
        <li><img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""></li>
        <li><img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""></li>
        <li><img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""></li>
    </ul>
</section>

Instead of this:

<section>
    <nav>
        <ul>
            <li><img src="img/numbers-01.jpg" alt=""></li>
            <li><img src="img/numbers-02.jpg" alt=""></li>
            <li><img src="img/numbers-06.jpg" alt=""></li>
        </ul>
    </nav>
</section>

Kyle, I don't see anything wrong with the code itself. If you're working on a challenge it could be that you're not actually doing what was asked. What exactly is the code challenge?

The second nav tag was the problem. I understand why its wrong now, but I am curious why it did not catch it in the first part of the section, when they asked for the ul and blank li. That was when I added the second nav tag, and since it was fine in the first section, I didn't think to look at that as an issue. Thank you both for chiming in!
