C# C# Objects Encapsulation with Properties Properties

Does anybody have an idea where I messed uP? With Challenge c-objects/encapsulation-with-properties/properties

public int NumFliesEaten { get { return _numFliesEaten; } set { value = _numFliesEaten; } }

Frog.cs
namespace Treehouse.CodeChallenges
{
    public class Frog
    {
        private int _numFliesEaten;

        public int NumFliesEaten
        {
            get
            {
                return _numFliesEaten;
            }
            set
            {
                value = _numFliesEaten;
            }

You have the setter backwards. We want to assign the value to the _numFliesEaten property, not the other way around.

  set
  {
    _numFliesEaten = value;
  }

Thanks Brendan, I will try this out but i do not know if this will solve the entire issue.
