Please don't do ax.collections.pop(), it is better to keep a reference to
the object returned by contour and then using its remove method.
The second way is safer as you will always remove the artist you think you
are removing and more future proof as the lists of artists (lines,
collections, ...) really should be considered internal details of mpl and
not accessed directly.
