beautiful mate, got it first try Cool

Loved this one. :) But could someone shed some light and comment on the following variation
1. Qe5+ Be7  2. Nf6+ Kf8  3. Nxd7
Now from here, if black decides to take the knight with 3...Rxd7, then after 4. Qh8+ Kf7  5. Qxa8 and so on. Now black may still be up in material but white has a more attacking game, and possibly a greater chance at an end game win.
All this said, the point of the game still remains to mate the king and in this example we see it happen with a beautiful, well, knight scuttle if I may say.
Im a beginner here so please give me the benefit of the doubt. :)
Thanks a lot.
Cheers.
