Instagram Animation – Android Enthusiasts Stack Exchange

My question is the following:
When you reach the top of instagram feed and you try to drag down to refresh the feed,
2 things happen:
1st. The Ui is dragged down along with your finger.
2nd. before the Feed will end up getting updated, we see a little refresh icon pop up for a few seconds and load.

Are both of these instances considered Animations within the APP?
Is the UI being dragged down an animation/transition ?.
Thanks in advance.
