Photorealistic forest?

Hi,

did anyone see a render in CG history, regardless of the tool or the technique, that looks quite photorealistic? I’ve seen almost perfect trees, perfect stones or perfect flowers, but I can’t remember a CG shot of a forest, that was not distinguishable from a foto or even video.

I’ve seen some Unreal 5 shots with Megascan trees and items, but it doesn’t take long to identify them as CG.

I think this is quite close but there are a few things lacking, like trees swaying in the breeze and some wildlife
