Let ƒ be Fatou's function, that is, ƒ(z)= z+1+e-z. We prove that the escaping set of ƒ has the structure of a 'spider's web', and we show that this result implies that the non-escaping endpoints of the Julia set of ƒ together with infinity form a totally disconnected set. We also present a well-known transcendental entire function, due to Bergweiler, for which the escaping set is a spider's web, and we point out that the same property holds for some families of functions.
