At any given time there multiple meteor showers taking place, some more active than others.
Given the location of those in the above pictures tells me that they are not Quadrantids. The Quadrantids radiates from an area within the Bootes constellation near Ursa Major and Draco, and is just one of at least a dozen other meteor showers currently underway.

Nice catch nonetheless.
