We analyze coupling and propagation of light through a suspended-core microstructured optical fiber. It is experimentally demonstrated that light-coupling efficiency and mode distribution strongly depend on relative position of the fiber's core and a light beam and light polarization. The experimental results are supported with numerical simulations. The developed numerical model confirmed all the observed dependences.
