Sure can. It guards against the try 1.Kg6? by promoting and pinning the white queen.

BTW there is an extra bishop on b2 in ortho2. I'll try to edit it away - else 1.Ba3 looks too good

(Edit: The annoying bishop removed now...)

Thanks for these beautiful compositions of little Mip!
Strange, I seem to remember seeing them before... must have been on a friend's web site ;-)
I find ortho2 the hardest to solve, since it is not immediately apparent that it is a zugzwang mate (and looking for a threat I fell victim of the try 1.Qe4? forgetting about the bishop pin). Ortho1 is very appealing , can you explain the role of the g2 pawn??
I like the mate in 4 very much. I guess the dual mates are unavoidable, unless you add a pair of blocked pawns on b6, b7 and move the bishop elsewhere (say on h1).

Mr.Bichu has asked to see my orthodox puzzles - if any. Well...

When I was younger (So much younger than today...)
and more foolish (Never needed anybody's help in any way ...)
I did fool around with some orthodox compositions.
Amazingly this one won the 1st prize in a novice tournay:

And the next one was composed, when I was just an eager schoolboy. It has a glaring artistic fault, but still I recall it with certain fondness.
