My friend, you're not including an image tag. You're attempting to put the image path as your href="" within an anchor tag

The path is the URI/URL... the address or location... that you want a link tag <a href=""></a> to bring you to when you click it or an image tag in this case to retrieve and show to the user. That, the path/url, is what goes inside the double quotes of the href="" attribute. So what your code is doing right now is simply linking to the image. Although there's no link text or anything for the user to really see to click on.

But anyway, what they want you to do is insert image tags which are the stand alone self closing <img src=""> tags. In THAT tag is where you place the location or path of the image which in this case is img/numbers-01.jpg and that goes within the double quotes of the src="" attribute.

Remember that link tags(the tags you provide in the beginning of an HTML doc to link to an external style sheet) & anchor tags (the tags used to create links) both get href="" attributes:

<link href="">

<a href=""> </a>

But image & script tags tags get src="" attributes. They do the same thing(provide a path for the browser to recognize/go to/pull from) but it's just different attribute names.

Anyway, your code should be this...

    <section>
      <ul>
        <li>
          <img src="img/numbers-01.jpg">
        </li>
        <li>
          <img src="img/numbers-02.jpg">
        </li>
        <li>
          <img src="img/numbers-06.jpg">
        </li>
      </ul>
    </section>
    <footer>
      <p>&copy; 2013 Nick Pettit.</p>
    </footer>
