Dropdown nav spacing issue

I'm trying to get rid of the extra space the beginning of the dropdown li items. Any suggestions? Thank you.

have you tried placing the opening li tag directly after the previous closing li?: <ul id="dropdown-nav"> <li><a href="pictures.html">Pictures</a></li><li> <a href="videos.html">Videos</a></li> </ul>
