Default Swinging sensation in Snatch

A couple of snatches from today's first "heavy," day in a couple weeks. Doubles of 61 and 66 kg, 87% and 94% of max. The baggy shirt makes it difficult to see what the elbows are doing but I have a couple specific questions if anyone has time to help me out. First while working up to these sets on a couple of reps I snatched without moving my feet. This was not something done consciously the bar just kept moving and I pulled under seemingly without raising up on toes or moving my feet. In the first rep of 61 in 1st video below, I barely moved my feet, again not something I was trying but the snatch felt good. Good? Bad? Irrelevant? Thoughts? Second I feel like I am really swinging the bar out in front. The video shows otherwise, I think. I am wondering if the early raising of hips and butt is causing this. As always thanks.
