Abstract: We present observations of the dynamic evolution of photospheric magnetic structures in the G-band, continuum, magnetograms and Dopplergrams. The observations were obtained with the Swedish one-m Solar Telescope on La Palma. Using adaptive optics and the Multi-Object Multi-Frame Blind Deconvolution image restoration technique, we obtained several datasets at close to the diffraction limit of the telescope (0.″1) over long periods of time. We show examples of the dynamical evolution of different magnetic structures: the advection of individual bright points by the granular flow, the formation and fragmentation of flux sheets, and the continuous transition between micro-pores, elongated ribbons and more circular “flowers”. Narrow sheets with downdrafts are found right at the edges of magnetic field concentrations.
