Nothing happens. Any ideas ?

This is Code

`$(document).ready (function () {

$('button').click(function () {


const animal = $(this).text();
const url = "http:/api.flickr.com/services/feeds/photos_public.gne?format=json&tags=" + animal; 

$.ajax ({ url: url, method:"GET", dataType:"jsonp", jsonpCallback: "jsonFlickrFeed", success: function (data){ console.log(data);

 let photoHTML = '<ul>';

  $.each(data.items, function (i,photos){

    photoHTML += '<li class="grid-12 tablet-grid-50" >';
    photoHTML += '<a href="' + photos.link + '" class="image">';
    photoHTML += '<img src="' + photos.media.m + '"> </a></li>';


  photoHTML += '</ul>';

} // ends callback

}); // End of $.ajax


}); `

    photoHTML += '<img src="' + photos.media.m + '>" </a></li>';  // fixed with added >
