This is a very tricky one. The first move is difficult to find and also the third move in the longest variation. However they both serve the same purpose, to cover a key flight square.

These puzzles are incredibly hard, I thought I had the first puzzle figured out a number of times including with the proper first move, but I always found a flaw and never saw the follow up pawn capture on move two. And now, even after seeing where I went wrong on the first puzzle and trying to apply what I learned, I still can't figure out the second one ). Thanks for posting these!
