Let's see how many easy post's there were today.Good puzzle,needed help for first move, 1.Nf5...(thought pawn would take N but that would have made it mate in two by moving Qh6#,so Qf8 was black's move to stop possible mate. 2.Rf7+...(if Q take's R,it's mate with Qh6 again,that's why Kh8. 3.RxQf8...aRxRf8,now I see mate, 4.Qh6+...Kg7, 5,Qg7#.Nice puzzle,good day chess heads!!!Now to see what you guy's thought.

why did the queen move to f8 instead of any other square?

To protect checkmate, 2.Qh6#,the same thing if Q took Rf7 for move 2 instead of moving Kh8,I wondered the same thing,but by looking spotted the mate in two.Good question.
