The guide below shows some of the other principal stars in the photo, and below that you can see a constellation map of Scorpius, on a much smaller scale, which shows that Scorpius is indeed one of the constellations that does look like its traditional image. Once it included the stars of Libra which formed its claws, making the resemblance even stronger.
