Ask nature - Butterfly perspective

Some thoughts/questions that have been present this past week:

What would we (read humans) say if a butterfly decided to try to mimic how a shark moves in water and then spends ten years in a science lab/factory to develop a suit that makes him swim faster?

What would we say if another organism would look at the question "ask nature" in the same way as we do?

Biomimicry for the sake of mankind? 

I believe that the fact that we look at "nature" as something separated from "us" is a part of the problem.
