    Assuming it is white to move (lol) :

    1.Bf6 Ke2 2.Bh4 Kf3 3.Kd2 Kf4 4.Ke2 Ke5 5.Kf3 Kd4 6.Bf6#

    Nice king 'chase' (as opposed to hunt). The obvious b5 etc... seems to need at least 7 moves.

    Sometimes it's nice to see the mating net closed by quiet moves instead of the usual brutal series of checks.
