Here's something from twitter where somebody sped up NASA's video of Dragon approaching the ISS and holding at the closest 20 meter hold point. The sped up version shows how active the Dragon's control system is, constantly sending commands to adjust its pitch, yaw and roll. The capsule seems to be constantly nodding and bobbing very slightly.

Reminds me a tad of an EVA pod approaching Discovery One on the Jupiter mission part of "2001: A Space Odyssey". At least Little Earth didn't have to fire any explosive bots to get inside. (Ripley just as dead as astronaut Frank Poole, assassinated by HAL, but a little better off in not being set adrift in space.)
