CSS CSS Basics (2014) Basic Layout Styling the "Wildlife" div with Background Properties

Not Accepting Answer In Code Challenge

Hi, I'm trying to pass a code challenge and it does not seem to be accepting my answer. I am almost positive that it is correct because I entered it in the same syntax as the workspace version (that worked correctly)

Anyhow, the code I'm entering is:

.wildlife { background-image: url('../img/bear.jpg') }

And it keeps telling me it is in a different folder, so I need to use the url() property.

Any help would be appreciated!

/* Complete the challenge by writing CSS below */
<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Lake Tahoe</title>
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="page.css">
    <link rel="stylesheet" href="style.css">
        <div class="primary-content t-border">
            <p class="intro">
                Lake Tahoe is one of the most breathtaking attractions located in California. It's home to a number of ski resorts, summer outdoor recreation, and tourist attractions. Snow and skiing are a significant part of the area's reputation.
            <a class="callout" href="#more">Find out more</a>
      <div class="wildlife">
        <h2>Check out all the Wildlife</h2>
          As spawning season approaches, the fish acquire a humpback and protuberant jaw. After spawning, they die and their carcasses provide a feast for gatherings of <a href="#mink">mink</a>, <a href="#bears">bears</a>, and <a href="#eagles">bald eagles</a>.
      </div><!-- End .wildlife -->
            <a class="callout" href="#wildlife">See the Wildlife</a>
        </div><!-- End .primary-content -->

I think the folder arrangement in the workspace may differ from the one in the challenge. The challenge folder is apparently a subfolder of html, not a peer folder of a shared parent. So following the challenge instructions, you should get a slightly different file location for your url:

.wildlife { background-image: url('img/bear.jpg') }
