Do you mean that she flings her tail irritably even though there's no feeder nearby when you are observing her above/or from the side of her enclosure?

Do you have more info on her instar or a currently picture of her?

You may wish to lookout for the pre-molt signs as they arise:
http://www.allscorpionarchives.com/t10-how-to-identify-a-premolt-scorpion

I would recommend using a substrate mixture of sand/coco fibre in a 70/30 mixture as Hottentotta hottentotta would appreciate a higher level of moisture/humidity as compared to true desert scorpions which are often prone to mycosis.

How are you providing water for her?

Overall, she seems healthy from the pictures. Nothing much to worry about Smile

Judging just from the pictures above, i'll say it's not in premolt yet.

Continue to feed her regularly, say once a week and remove the feeder if it was not taken immediately.

For other husbandry details, you may refer to the following caresheet:
