What am I doing wrong? It says to create an image tag but I thought that is what I am doing

image tag

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>Nick Pettit</title>
      <a href="index.html">
        <h1>Nick Pettit</h1>

You are creating an 'anchor' tag with a link to an image.

<a href="img/numbers-01.jpg">

What it also wants is an image tag inside the anchor tag so it knows what to show as the anchor. It is formatted as follows:

<img src="" alt="">

Where the source is the path to your image and alt is alternative text that will appear if the image fails to load.
