Abstract: The Solar Optical Telescope on-board Hinode is providing a new view of the fine scale dynamics in sunspots with its high spatial resolution and unprecedented image stability. We present three features related to the Evershed flow each of which raises a new puzzle in sunspot dynamics; i.e., twisting appearance of penumbral filaments, the source and sink of individual Evershed flow channels, and the net circular polarization in penumbrae with its spatial relation to the Evershed flow channels.
