Yes, The d7 pawn is pinned.
I had it quickly with 1. Qg5+ (mate) and was looking around for other mates
because I got it so quick and suspected every move mated.
Then I noticed another Black Queen on c1. 1.Qg5+ is not mate. OOPS!
Pawn takes bishop, becomes knight, mate, I think. No, doesn't work, What about Rook takes queen +, mate? Nope, bishop blocks. Dang. Ok. Pawn takes B. becomes rook and the A rook mates? Geez that doesn't work either, the dam h dark bishop interceeds.Ok, regroup. Q-f6+? Black queen pinned. That sounds like the one. No, there is that pesky problem of KxQ uncontested. Dang again
N-f5+, bishop takes. Oh FRIGGING K. Q-g5 mate, except for that dam black queen takes. Not the one next to it, the sneaky bastard on c1. Going back to basics, I see nine possible checks, is THAT at least correct? So back to N-g6 mate. I think. No intercessions, no takes. Looks right. Nope, bishop covering that one too.
