From the manpage:

-i identity_file
        Selects a file from which the identity (private key) for RSA or
        DSA authentication is read.  The default is ~/.ssh/identity for
        protocol version 1, and ~/.ssh/id_rsa and ~/.ssh/id_dsa for pro-
        tocol version 2.  Identity files may also be specified on a per-
        host basis in the configuration file.  It is possible to have
        multiple -i options (and multiple identities specified in config-
        uration files).
