    If working, you can get this achievement by going to World Map / Free Flight, and typing "Fauna" into the search bar to see a list of viewable animals. Choose an animal and a slow plane, during the day time, and set out on your journey.

    Once you are in the air, use cockpit view, locate the waypoint, enable the smartcam through the s key on your keyboard, and fly by the animals at a slow speed, with close distance while maintaining smartcam focus for the achievement.

    Change smartcam to "toggle" for this to be easier.

    This was fixed as of the September 16, 2020 patch.

    eNaRGeThis one seems a bit odd, I tried multiple settings options with no luck, what worked for me in the end was:
    Grizzly Bears
    All Assistance
    Cockpit View
    Held 'S' key (using keyboard on Series X)
