I am fairly new to Python and come from a more Matlab point of view. I am trying to make a series of 2 x 5-panel contourf subplots. My approach so far has been to convert (to a certain degree) my Matlab code to Python and plot my subplots within a loop. The relevant part of the code looks like this:

fig=plt.figure(figsize=(15, 6),facecolor='w', edgecolor='k')

for i in range(10):

    #this part is just arranging the data for contourf 

    ind2 = py.find(zz==i+1)

    sfr_mass_mat = np.reshape(sfr_mass[ind2],(pixmax_x,pixmax_y))

    sfr_mass_sub = sfr_mass[ind2]

    zi = griddata(massloclist, sfrloclist, sfr_mass_sub,xi,yi,interp='nn')

    temp = 250+i  # this is to index the position of the subplot



    plt.subplots_adjust(hspace = .5,wspace=.001)

    #just annotating where each contour plot is being placed


As a newbie to this forum, I don't seem to be allowed to attach the resulting image. However, going by my indexing in the code as 'temp' the resulting layout of the 2 x 5 panels is:

251 - 252 - 253 - 254 - 255

256 - 257 - 258 - 259 - 250

However, what I want is

250 - 251 - 252 - 253 - 254

255 - 256 - 257 - 258 - 259 

That is, the first panel (250) appears in the last position where I would think 259 should be. And 251 seems to be where I want 250 to be placed. They all seem to be in the correct sequence, just circularly shifted by one.

I know this will be something very silly, but appreciate any help you can give.

Thank you in advance.

Using your code with some random data, this would work:

fig, axs = plt.subplots(2,5, figsize=(15, 6), facecolor='w', edgecolor='k')

fig.subplots_adjust(hspace = .5, wspace=.001)

axs = axs.ravel()

for i in range(10):



The layout is of course a bit messy, but that's because of your current settings (the figsize, wspace etc).enter image description here
