Praise the Bishop Pair!

I'm ecstatic. I just accomplished my best win against an 1800 player, and who's to thank? my bishop pair. In this endgame my opponent had the knight pair and was a pawn up, I in return had the bishop pair in an open position. Everything seemed solid, [he declined both my draw offers,] when suddenly one move spiraled the entire position into a mate in 1.

Can you spot it?

 

Thank you for reading.
