Found this spider on a watermelon in our garden. Have not been able to identify it. Can you help?

The harmless Green Lynx Spider, a hunting spider that does not build a web to snare prey, is one of our favorite spiders. Female Green Lynx Spiders, like your individual, guard their egg sacs against any perceived threat.
Thanks Daniel. Spiders are not my favorites, but this is a very pretty and unique one. I appreciate your help with the identification. You made my wife happy. She can quit looking in all her books now!
