Nice shot! A photo like yours makes it appear by its other common name, the Apple Core Nebula. Longer exposures that bring out the oval shaped O3 perpendicular to the hourglass shape tend to give it quite a different look.

Yes, the oval tends to fill in more instead of just the hourglass shape, and then the wings appear, giving it the shape of butterfly or I always thought it looked like a candy wrapper, like https://www.astrobin...8/E/?q=&camera=

 

Its an object that really changes shape throughout the exposure.
